Help! Ten moth dd is teething and so is refusing to eat and will only breastfeed. This is normal right? I am concerned it is some kind of weaning regression as she goes to nursery soon so I need her day weaned!

I wouldn't worry too much, she's probably just needing the extra comfort when it hurts and she knows that she can fill her hungry tummy without it hurting her sore gums! I know everyone always says it's just a phase but I'm sure it won't last long and you'll have her ready for nursery without any probs.

I found teething powders helped my son (boots own) but they didn't for my DD - they're all different aren't they. You could try bongella before meals?

Perfectly normal Zimm. Try teething powders, ibruprofen or cucumber sticks or all three.

Ta - this teething is such a pain. Tired, crabby non eating child. Tired, crabby chocolate eating mother....
