Probably. He must be in a lot of pain. It's normal for them to do that. Try Tylenol every 4 hours and Ibuprofen every 8. I know it sounds like a lot, but it will ease his pain even more.

he is almost 2 years of age. but im not really worried about the eating as much as i am worried about the rolling around and crying like he just got run over. all my son wants to to is lay around if he isnt in one of his crying stages.. normally after i give him his medicine and it kicks in he is all calm and just wants to sleep or just relax which i am allowing him to do cause i figured he needs to relax.. but maybe its just a new phase of teething he is going through?

Well the juice isn't good for him...how old is he? Teething is really hard on kids and they tend not to have an appetite. I remember going through the same thing with my daughters. They were in so much pain they just didn't want to eat.

I made them smoothies and they liked that because it was cool on their teeth. Plus they got the fruit they needed.
