I posted elsewhere but hoping for a bit more traffic here. DS1 has always been a small eater but always thrived and done around 3 poos a day so I've never worried! He's always struggled with teething too, going through temporary bouts of eating less when a tooth is cutting. His teeth are annoying him now (molars) but it's been about 2 weeks of barely eating and I'm starting to notice him looking thinner. The poos are now every couple of days too. He's taking his milk ok and this morning he had a bit of weetabix but he's just not interested most of the time. He's sleeping ok. Any advice?

Have you tried him with a dose of ibruprofen about 30 mins before a meal? Making some things like homemade lollies, a frozen banana and sone cucumber to chew on might help. Letting him have his favourites for a couple of days wont hurt either.
