Agree it sounds like teething, mine has been the same. Hard to find anything that helps, I found chewing on Sophie the giraffe and a raspberry teether (like a dummy but for chewing on) helped a bit. When it was bad I just had to feed more frequently and give lots of cuddles and calpol at night. Poor babies!

If he's been ok today then it might have been some tooth action in his jaw.

He seemed in pain last night and gave him a dose if calpol. But he is a happy little chap today and no sign of pain. I have looked at his ears and can't see anything... ?

Does he seem like he's in pain when he's feeding? Might he have a ear infection?

DS is 20 weeks and has always fed really well. The last few days he's been feeding poorly, a few mins, pulling off, crying, distracting etc. I had a look at Kelly Mom and wondered if he was distracted so we have been feeding quietly which has helped but he's still not right.

He has been off colour the last couple of days, nothing specific just grouchy. I wondered if teething as he is drooly etc but no sign of red gums etc. He has had a few green kinda stinky nappies (sorry tmi!) but I really don't think it's a hind/fore milk thing.

He is much cheerier today but still feeding pretty rubbishy. Any suggestions, ideas? I'm at a loss!
