Q.

Teeth

Hi there, my daughter is 4 days short of 11 months, she started crawling about 2 weeks ago and is pulling herself up to stand against things. However she still has no teeth. for months is seems she might be teething but nothing. She still hates to eat food, and really fights with us concernining food. Porridge is only medium fight but pureed food she screams at us like there is no tomorrow. Her weight is fine and she is very active little person and knows what she does &  doesn''t want in life from a very young age, can be very stong willed at times. From the very beggining she has disliked solids (6 months) do you think she has a problem or is it a control thing? she has been sleeping through for almost a week and a half now, with a slight moan here or there. She goes to a creche daycare and has already had about 3 antibiotics and is often on Rinex and a cough medicine, I want to start her on creche guard to help her immune system, would this be ok and help?
Thanks

To answer the last part of your question first;sure you should start your baby on Creche Guard. Do not worry about her teeth they will come through. You can understand why your baby dislikes solids as she cannot chew yet. She seems to be well and happy despite het eating habits so there is no need for concern. Give her the foods she will eat and which are soft and mushy until she is ready for coarser food.
