Here are some signs commonly associated with teething: - irritability or fussiness - drooling (could lead to facial rash) - gum swelling and sensitivity - gnawing or chewing behaviour - refusing food - sleep problems For more information on signs of teething: It is common for baby to refuse food or to eat less when he/she is teething. This is due to the discomfort of swollen gums etc. If baby is still eating, my friends are usually not too worried. One tried spoon/syringe feeding once as her baby totally refused food for a few meals. Fortunately, this phase will pass. Try getting some teething toys or help to massage baby's gums to help soothe his discomfort.
