My daughter has adapted very well to eating cereal and baby food, and has always eaten very well before now. Lately she eats about 5 bites of her cereal/baby food and then refuses to eat the rest. I have been giving her cheerios and graham crackers in addition, but I'm worried that she isn't eating enough. She eats about 7 ounces in her bottles 4 times a day. She IS getting eight teeth at the same time right now so I assume that has something to do with it. Is it okay if she continues to eat the way she has been at least until those teeth push through all the way? Or should I try feeding her more often.....what is the right course of action here?
On another note, has anyone else's child gotten so many teeth all at once? Sophie is only 7 1/2 months old and she already has the top two and bottom two teeth. Now she is getting the two pairs right next to both of those sets. Kid's gonna have a mouth full of teeth by one year old!

Omg I thought my daughter was the only one going through this because everyone I spoke to doesn't remember their kids having teeth so young. My daughter got her first 2 at 4 months. Now also 71/2 months she has eight. Four one top and four bottom. The teething doesn't seem to interfere with her eating habits. It just interrupt her sleep. The doctor told me not to use orajel because she'll swallow to much of it, to use Tylenol instead. If she's eating her food like usually I wouldn't change anything.
