she started teething again about 3 weeks ago and was very grumpy with these two (top ones). She stopped eating but still drinking ok. I still cant get her back onto solids even though her teeth look preety much through. The length of time worries me - is this normal?? How do I get her back onto solids when she keeps refusing them?

She might not be growing right now. They tend to eat a lot more when they are growing. Try something sweet like bananas. I would try multiple times and not offer her a drink unless she gets frustrated. If you are still worried, put cereal in her bottle and you will know that she is getting some food. You can always ask your doctor. If she is putting on weight, i am sure she is fine. Hope this helps.

Thanks Samantha. The only thing I can very occasionally get her to eat is sweet. She's put on very little weight - may be 200gms in last 4 weeks but thats better than losing!

Thanks for your support :)
