Her mouth probably hurts. You might want to put a little warm water on the dry food to make it softer, add a scrambled egg, maybe some yogurt. I tied a knot in a washcloth, got it wet, froze it and then let them chew on it to relieve the pain. Poor baby.
yeah right around there... both my twins lost their appetite for a while too while they were teething. People always commented on how skinny they were. I did everything I could to get them to eat. They never ate their daily recommended amount the entire time they were teething, they always slid by on the bare minimum. I mixed in some of the canned food with the crunchy stuff and let it sit for a few minutes to soften..it helped but still couldnt always get the whole meal down...
This too shall pass....
And then at 7 months or so they want to USE their new teeth. I feel like teething lasts until they are a year old.....Jake has become mouthy and chewing a lot more NOW at 7 months so hang on it's not even close to over!
put something yummy in the food. yogurt, etc.
I've done that for minna on a couple meals, because I know she's a fat butt and lovessss to eat; but for some reason there's been a couple of lunches that she hasn't finished, so about once a week i'll add something yummy to it
I hope her mouth feels better soon....I keep some small carotts in the house, she likes to chew on them when they are really cold (I keep them in the fridge but I will put one in the freezer for about an hour before I give it to her) and it seems to feel good for her.
