  • It most likely is that he's teething then. Have you tried any baby orajel or baby tylenol?

  • Relax first off.

    He may have just ended a growth spurt. That get hungrier during these spurts, but after it seems like they don't want to eat anything at all. He's only 7 months, he's still trying to figure things out. No need to panic over every little change in him. If he changes his mind often, oh well. You don't always have to give in. I bet you $50 that NOTHING is wrong with your kid and you're just freaking out. If you look for a problem too much you're going to find one whether it be real or not.

    Remember that every time you think you have the hang of it, everything does a flip flop and you're starting at square one again.
