    Default Did teething effect your LO's appetite?

    I see the 8 month old LOs all decided to give us trouble from the other threads I've read

    Anyhow, DD (you guessed it, 8 months old) just cut 2 bottom teeth a couple of days ago. The days before they cut through I noticed her appetite for solids changed. She wasn't interested at all. Then they cut through, she ate solids again for about 2 days like normal, and now we're back to the "uninterested" state. I think I see the OTHER 2 teeth (on each side of the ones that just came out) making their way very soon.
    Is this the normal pattern between teething and solids? Did your LOs refuse solids when they were cutting teeth?

    And for those of you mamas that have BTDT, please don't tell me about the molars I've heard that those are a total PITA and am trying to not think about it

    This has been my DD's pattern of late. She cut her two lower molars about a week ago and now it looks like her eye teeth are ready to pop through and she's not eating much. But she's nursing plenty!

    Si has never been big on solids. But his patterns definitely change when teething or sick. He BF's like CRAZY and wants nothing to do with solids. He actually yelled at me and threw banana to the floor last week so...

    yup I've noticed an attitude starting to emerge in DD, too. She'll push my hand out of the way if I'm reaching for something she's holding....and the begins...

    She has been attached to my boob 24/7 but even then will fuss at it , but wants NOTHING to do with solids including her favorite, applesauce.
    I'm glad to hear this is pretty much a normal cycle then...oy!
