Audrey is miserable today.. I'm praying that its *just* teething... but she has only drank 1 bottle today, and its 7:25.. She has had 2 jars of baby food and has had some treats, but she won't drink her bottles.. she is grumpy, and I'm pretty sure she had a fever earlier when she woke up from her nap.. She felt REALLY warm, but I have 3 thermometers, and none of them will read correctly!!! one of which we JUST bought.. So annoying..Audrey also only had maybe 12-13oz of formula yesterday as well.. But she was really happy all day.

Anyway, do you guys think this is true teething? Like maybe a tooth is FINALLY going to pop through, or maybe she has some sort of a little bug? She kept making like big skid marks in her diaper earlier, about 3 times before she actually pooped, but her poops were solid, not diarrhea.

Do I have to worry about dehydration? We're giving her a sippy cup of water, but she doesn't want a whole lot of that either...

I don't have any advice b/c I'm clueless on this one--I hope one of the ladies can offer advice.

It could be teething. That can make a lot of babies not want to nurse or eat from bottles, but they'll take in solids just fine. I'd just keep offering her the bottle and make sure to *not* give her too much water because that can actually make her sick. Too much water at this age can cause an imbalance and you don't want that. Maybe offer some frozen fruit in a mesh feeder to soothe her gums and also hydrate her a bit.

It sounds like it could possibly be teething. Some babies are really bothered by the sucking feeling on their gums. I'd keep on eye on her for another day and go from there. Also watch her wet diapers, if she's not wetting then worry about dehydration. I know Audrey is a formula baby, but it would still apply, at a LLL meeting I went to they said "wet is wet". So she doesn't have to totally soak her diaper, just a little pee is a wet diaper too.
