Sounds like a nursing strike due to teething. Just keep offering the breast. Its all you can do. I wouldn't bother with juice or a great deal of foods just yet. If he eats too much solids at this age he won't get enough nutrition from your milk. That could also be the issue, if he's eating pureed food he could be getting too full off of just a small amount and theres no room for milk.
