    I hope she picks up soon, its so hard when they are sick, but try not to stress too much, just keep offering it to her.
    Thanks for checking up on us! She's still refusing all solids except breakfast but is drinking more of her bottles. She's just finished the antibiotics and was checked by the GP again - looks like the infection is gone (yay!) but the cough is still sticking around. She's been prescribed ventolin (sp?) to help with that while she gets her strength back up.

    She was giggling away with me this morning and when I looked closely - teeth! Her first teeth are coming through! I can see the two bottom teeth just under the surface. So that probably explains a lot!

    Try maybe give her some cold cucumber sticks ( skin on ) - great for teething as they are cold and she hopefully will gum off the flesh! Just cut into thick sticks long enough for her to hold ( if she takes to them they are great dippers for tzatiki, avocado dip or even yogurt )

    I was thinking of cucumber, I must get some tomorrow to try. She took 3 mouthfuls of puréed sweet potato and pumpkin today for lunch then refused the rest - it was still an improvement though!

    That panicky part of me keeps freaking out and thinking she'll never eat any solids!! I'm sure she'll get there but I can't help feeling like I'm doing it all wrong!
