It seems that your your baby niece ate well at first and now is feeding very poorly. This has been going on for 2 months and she is losing weight. This poor appetite does not appear to be due to teething.The baby may have an illness such as TB or some other cause that needs to be diagnosed. I am concerned about this little baby. Please take her to be seen by a paediatrician. Please let me know what the result is once she has been seen.
