Teething and eating less: what do you do about this?
Refusal to feed. When your not feeling well you loose your appetite so it's normal for a teething baby to loose theirs. Try asking your pediatrician what would help, like teething toys or cold cloth, teething tablets.
Uncomfortable, cranky babies yearn to be soothed by something in their mouths — whether a bottle or the breast. But the suction of nursing may make a teething baby's sore gums feel worse. For that reason, teething babies are fussy about feedings (and get more frustrated as neither their discomfort nor their hungry tummies find relief). Babies eating solid foods may also refuse to eat during teething, though check with your pediatrician if your baby shuns several feedings.
