My 5 month old daughter cut 2 teeth on wednesday and it seems since then she barely takes her bottle. Does drinking cause her gums to be more sore? Or is there another reason shes not drinking that much and i should be concerned?
Thanks in advance!

  • I think the pressure from the sucking makes their gums hurt. Try giving her some tylenol or motrin or teething tablets or something. Or try putting some baby orajel on her gums to numb them right before you feed her. (I know it sounds nasty, but babies don't seem to mind as much as we do.)
