So it has been about a month since our appointment with the nutritionist, and we have implemented most of her suggestions. For a while there, she was eating a lot better. I was nervous, because we were out the past three weekends in a row, but she did ok while we were out. When we were home, though, she was doing great. Earlier last week, she was eating SO WELL, and DH and I were so very excited until.....
ARG! She has one of her bottom teeth coming in now, and she has decided she won't bother to eat more than the two or three bites it takes to stave off the hunger. It has been three days since she's eaten anything resembling a meal. She's downing the milk like there's no tomorrow, at least. I would pull back on the milk a little in favor of her attempting more food, but I'm hoping it's temporary due to the pain in her mouth. Poor thing. Better milk than nothing. I just hope she doesn't forget about how well she was eating before her teething issue. I'm also crossing my fingers that she doesn't end up losing all the weight she had hopefully been putting on with her good appetite. I have no clue how she is doing weight wise. Next check isn't until the beginning of July.

OMG, that happened to us too! I've very frustrating. Just when it seemed that he got his appetite he cut FOUR teeth in a week's time (almost all molars). After about a week he was back on track. Hope she gets done teething quick!
