For the past day or two Chase doesn't want to eat much. Every once in a while he will drink his full bottle but most of the time he is only drinking 2-4 ounces. It's so weird. He will eat solids ok but hes never really been a great solid eater. I think he's teething as he has been gnawing on his hand a lotand been fussier than usual at night and not sleeping well but other than that he is his happy normal self. Anyone else experienced a baby who isn't eating well when teething? Or maybe it's unrelated I don't know. Just looking for advice.

Thank you MeganPixel for surprising me with this super cute siggy-you rock!

It could be teething. Violet doesn't nurse as well when she's cutting a tooth and I remember Lily didn't either.

Rachel does this too...and I haven't really been able to link it to anything specific. But she'll do it for a week or two and then go back to eating like normal for a while. I don't really have any advice...but you're def not alone!

Ella has been doing this as well. Thankfully she loves her solids and has been eating them well. I have related it to teething. Have you tried making the bottle a little cooler? We did and it helped a little. Other than that has he been constipated? I know when Ella is constipated she doesn't eat much either.

Could he be getting distracted? Brynlee has been doing that also, but everything distracts her nowadays, so she's constantly looking at everything instead of focusing on her bottles.

If its not that, then teething could be it! I've heard that being the case in many situations

LOVE my siggy, thank you Meganpixel!!!!!!

Didi doesn't seem to eat as much either when her teething is bothering her. It's hard to tell...
