Can teething put them off food?

DS2 (18m) has always eaten everything, never turned his nose up at anything I've offered. But for the last couple weeks he's got really picky. He hardly ever finishes a meal but want to snack ALL the time. His canines are coming through, which is also disturbing his sleep, so I was wondering if it was teething, or something else?

Teething I'd say. My 11 month old went off food for about 2 weeks over Christmas.

I just kept offering food at the same times I always do (breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack and dinner), and he could drink as much milk and water as he liked.

Yes. Agree with visual. It might be worth trying ibuprofen too and a teething gel like dentinox.

Thanks both. Will weather it out then. Have been giving paracetamol, is there a reason ibuprofen is better for teething?
