11month old child doesnt want to eat

Hi, I am very worried about my girl. she is 11 months old and doesnt want to eat proerly from friday. she is ful of energy and talks and giggles allot when we ply with her. I took her yesterday for her vacsination and the suster told me that she is 900gr under weight. She looks healthy and doesnt look skinny. She also doesn''t drink that much now. in the morning when i chage her nappy it''s almost dry and not like it used to be. Her tummy is normal, she sometimes vomit when she eats something other that yogurt or baby porrige. before friday she loved to eat mash potato and pumkin and spinach and 2min noodles. She is busy getting two teeth in the middle on her upper gum, can that be the cause?
She is now 11months old and still dont want to crawl, what can i do to help her?
Thank you

The most likely cause is that your baby is teething. She appears to be well otherwise and does not seem to be obviously too thin. She should soon start eating again.
