A lack of interest in food is one of several signs of teething. As the teeth push through the gums they cause pain and discomfort which often stops the baby from eating. Teething babies often find that the pain increases in their gums as they feed from a bottle or eat food. They stop doing so and prefer to chew on a teething ring or other teething items as this also soothes the pain.A temporary lack of appetite is common amongst teething babies and usually resolves itself after a couple of weeks. Ensure that your baby drinks plenty of fluids and try and tempt with a few treats to stimulate his appetite. A few ice lollies or some chilled fruit might persuade him but if not then try cold, sugar free drinks. Plus these can be act as suitable objects to chew on during teething. If your little one refuses food and drink and has not regained his appetite after two weeks then speak to your GP.
