Hello. I'm wondering if anyone of you has had this issue. My daughter has been a very good eater and these past 4 days she just won't eat. She's drinks moslty water and some milk. I called the dr and spk w/nurse and she said that my daughter will eat when she wants to eat. I'm just not so happy w/that answer and as a first time mom, it just bugs me to see her not eat. I bought pediasure and hoping she will try to drink that and help supplement a meal. Has anyone had this issue with their baby?

When they are cutting teeth, their gums hurt, and biting makes it worse. If she's drinking water and some milk, and its only been a few days, she's fine. She will eat when her mouth feels better, but you could try things like yogurt, applesauce, smoothies...

Anything soft, cool and soothing will be more preferable to the child than the pain of trying to eat.

Thank you Shawnn! I feel way better hearing this. The nurse just didn't really say much to me & left it as, she'll eat when she wants. I will try a the foods you suggested. She's just so active that I want to make sure something's in her tummy. Thanks again for your help!!
