my 8 1/2 months old daughter was weighed 7 weeks ago & was 17lb 8oz and she got weighed today & was 17lb 14oz. shes had a viral infection twice & now has a cold. she's not really been eating as much as she used 2 but is drinking a lot more milk. Don i need 2 be worried about anything & take her 2 the doctor or leave it for 1-2 weeks to see if it improves or not?

Motrin is ibuprofin...for the pain of teething...or rub a little whiskey on her gums (that's an old time remedy that my mom used) I have done it a few times when she's been really irritable...only twice though...I don't want to give her any alcohol (not that rubbing it on her gums will hurt her it helps to dumb the pain)...so I give her the motrin.

I wouldn't wait...If she has been sick very frequently and doesn't really eat much, that would worry me. My daughter is 7 months and 19 lbs...when she doesn't eat, I know something is wrong with her...llike teeth, or a fever...I just think she's trying to tell you something...it could be her teeth...have you tried motrin?

she has had a fever but docs at the hospital said was a viral inf and if shes not eating giver her plenty of milk. shes not being sick as such jus not wanting to eat, it could possibly be her teeth as she has flushed cheeks and wants 2 chew everthing. what is motrin? as ive never heard of it.
