Is this normal?

He usually has 5 x 9oz bottles a day (roughly).

Today he's only had two bottles of 7oz. One at 5am, one at 3pm.

He's cut two teeth already and I think we're expecting top teeth now as he's touching the top gums all the time and is in obvious pain.

He's also got a little cough and a snotty nose.

He's had two colds previous to this and I didn't notice a drop in feeds but don't know for sure. Also didn't notice with his two teeth, but didn't know it was happening at all, wasn't in pain with them, so didn't notice milk intake here either.

Is it normal for babies to go off their milk when teething or if they have a cold?

Thank you

He also hasn't put on any weight on the last two weeks. Just stayed the same.

But he was 11lb7oz at birth now 18lb15oz so figure he's not going to keep putting it on fast otherwise he'll be massive?
