Obviously your baby cannot continue to drink only tea. She may be teething but also this may not really be the reason why she is eating and drinking so poorly. Has she got a blocked nose or a cold now? If she has,clear her nose with Salex nose drops twice a day. If her nose is not blocked and she still refuses to eat or drink her milk she must be seen by a doctor.
