help! my toddler wont eat.

My son is 17 months old, and his molars are coming in but he has bearly eaten anything the last 2 days. I've tried baby oragel, teething tablets, even tylenol. And its hit or miss with eating. He hasn't been sleeping well either.he's already tiny so I don't want him to lose weight. Any suggestions to help me get him to eat and sleep?

  • When he's hungry - he will eat. Try offering his favorite foods while he is teething to entice him a little. Even resort to just foods like yogurt, mashed potatoes, even jarred baby food if you have to for a while and see if he'll go for that.

  • Any chance he might have an ear infection? Three days of poor eating warrents a trip to see the doc.
