My previously food loving daughter has stopped eating for the last few days. I am feeding her the Annabel Karmel way, and she was doing relly well eating everything i put in front of her.
Over the weekend she has started to turn away from food, and will only take a few oz of milk now and again. Could this be the start of teething (no sign of any), or is it something else?

am not sure what "the Annabel Karmel way" involves, but how is she with finger food? A lot of babies seem to get fed up with having a spoon poked at them at some point and are happier feeding themselves. Worth a try.

Don't have an answer for you buy my son stopped letting me feed him with a spoon at around 7 months. Since then I've only given him finger food.

my dd who is a very good eater will not eat a thing when teething. Often this is the 1st sign I have that she is teething.
As long as she is drinking enough, I wouldn't worry for more than a few days.
Have you tried teething remedies/teethers or some calpol? or a bit of a baton, something for her to get her gums round?

Not sure, the Annabel Karmel way is lots of puree's all home made, lots of different flavours. up until now she's been really easy to be honest, eating all that is offered. She's now off her food & is only taking half the milk she was. Her sleeping is also a bit off, she's napping alot and seems a bit grisly. I think its teething, but didn't realise it would effect her this much in terms of how much she's eating.

If you're worried, I'd either get your gp to check her over, or have a word with your health visitor, especially if its been more than a few days, and she's not drinking as much either.

Or she might just be ill. DD was like this aged 8 months for three day, then threw up and was much better.
We all got a tummy bug
