  • Yes I've heard that the pain is greater at night when they are lying down. Try propping him up if it is possible. Or you can try Highlands teething tablets and a little tylenol

  • Just because he hasn't been hungry at night lately doesn't mean he's not hungry now. A major growth spurt is coming up, he's bound to be hungry sooner or later because of it. Give him a bottle, if he's hungry he'll eat.
