Hi there I am a first time mum and my baby is 14 weeks old I went to clinic and they told me my baby is starting to teeth he has been very irritable the last couple of days, yesterday he only drunk 4 bottles and he normally drinks 7-8 bottles is this normal for a baby to off his food while teething??
Thank you

Yes it is normal. The suxking causes the gums to get hot and swollen making the pain worse. My baby eats way less when having teething pain. I give a gum massage inbetween latches or put on the teething mittens . Once my lo has chewed a bit he can eat more.

My kids always had upset stomach while teething. You can get chamomille tablets for baby, teething rings you put in freezer, baby orjel and nap if you can when your baby naps. A well rested Mom can always deal better. I wish you the best
