Is this normal?

My 10 month old daughter has been very crabby lately. She's had a runny nose for the past 4-5 days. I know she is getting her top teeth. She hasn't ate well for the past few days. We try to feed her and she just scrunches her nose and turns her head. She also been sleeping a lot. Is this normal for her to be doing?

  • probably not feeling well, teething or ears or maybe getting sick- just let her rest and keep her hydrated, if it persisit- see the dr. just to be for sure.

  • Breastfed babies may eat less solids and breastfeed more when they are teething or they aren't feeling well. They may stop eating solids at all and that's fine.

  • very normal, the runny nose, and refusing to eat is just symptoms of her teething. try feeding her soft and cool foods like pudding or cooled baby fruit that always made my lil girls mouth feel better, and as for the runny nose so long as its clear there isnt anything to worry about :)
