At 15 months, boys should weigh around 21 to 25 pounds. If he's below this, you may want to talk to your doctor about what might be affecting his desire to eat. Teething may cause him to eat more slowly because he's uncomfortable. Try giving him a variety of foods in different levels of softness or hardness to see which he prefers.

I had never heard of Gripe Water until recently. Seems to be more for gas. Not sure how it would help for teething although the box says it might. Make sure he has teething toys to help sooth his gums.
