Baby not wanting to eat?

My son will be 5 months old on the 27th. He has always been a good eater. Usually has 4-6oz every 3-5 hours. Now Im lucky to get him to eat a full 2oz in 4 hours. His two bottom teeth have just popped out. Could that be why? Also I have a Doctors appointment tomorrow and I will ask his Pedi. I just wanted to know if any of you have expierienced this?

  • there have been a couple days when I cannot get my dd to nurse well, and one day when she wouldn't eat for a solid 12 hours. for her it was just teething pain, and her teeth haven't even broken through yet! also, if he has an upset tummy he will eat less.

  • he may just not be growing as fast right now. it could be teething though.
