As the title says....did your LO go off their food when their molars came through and how long did it take for them to start eating normally again?
DD is 21 months and I think one of her 2yo molars is coming through (I can feel it just breaking through - but it has a long way to go!). She is normally a big eater, but since Friday every time she bites down on anything she cries, despite being given panadol and/or neurofen. She will tolerate yoghurt and really runny weetbix and just today started eating the soft fruit bars you can buy in the supermarket (I am getting desperate!!). Anything else and she just cries and refuses - even soft foods that she normally loves.
I assume it's her teeth, but she has never gone off her food when teeth are coming through before, and her sleeping pattern also isn't matching up to how it usually does (i.e. she usually wakes during the night for hours when teething, but is sleeping okay at the moment...albeit with the help of panadol at times). She seems fine apart from when she's eating.
I feel so sorry for her and I am wondering how long to leave it before being concerned. She has had 3.5 days of pretty regular pain relief now (mainly panadol, but neurofen about once a day). I am hoping it's not an ulcer or anything else and is just her teeth, but she wont let me look in her mouth!!
