Teething & appetite

I was just wondering how teething can affect a baby's appetite for both solids and milk? My 10 month old has been off her solids I than than the odd mouthful for a week and isn't finishing her bottles either. She has had episodes of poor appetite since she was tiny due to silent reflux however I was wondering if it could be due to teething. She has 2 teeth already but when these cut through it was while she had a virus and refused all food & drink and was hospitalised because of this, therefore not sure how teething alone affects her.
Other than the appetite she seems happy though so not sure that teething is the cause.

It can definitely affect appetite as my DS usually eats like a horse, but not when he's teething. The difference is v obvious. For him it only lasted a day or 2 though per tooth! Hope it's just that for your DD
