not eating cus of teething or a phase? grrr!
the only meal sam properly eats is his breakfast (cereal and an apple or banana, plus 9oz of milk) he hardly touches his lunch or dinner and im beginning to really worry about him ( i thought it was teething because he is cutting a few teeth atm and theres possibly a molar coming thru too (its too dangerous to put my fingers that far back, ill lose them lol) but even when hes had medecine, teething gel AND teething powder, he is still refusing any food. what usually happens is ill sit him in his high chair and he will start moaning/crying as soon as the food is put down in front of him and ill pretty much force him to have a taste (sounds mean but its not, it works sometimes lol) and once hes had a taste he will generally eat a few mouthfulls and thats all he will eat ( if it is a phase, how long can i expect this to last? its been going on nearly a month and if it is teething and not a phase, surely it cant be healthy for me to be giving him calpol every day for almost a month?! i really dont know what to do. im not sure if the doctor or health visitor can help? arghh! its so stressful and i just really dont know what to do with him! his nappies arent as frequent as they used to be (today i only got 2 dirty nappies) so i know its affecting him. sorry this was long, i really need some advice on what the best thing to do is
