Hi Prof

My six months old baby has been a bit off her feeds over the weekend,she weighs 10kgs and she normally drinks about over a 1000 ml of milk a day but this weekend she has been taking about 700 a day.she seems irritated a lot when she drinks and she puts everything in her mouth,her fist is always in the mouth..she is on S26 gold and the other thing she seemed to be passing gas over the weekend.

I bought her teejel yesterday and she seemed a bit better n she drank a bit afterwards,,she also doesnt want me to remove my finger when rubbing her..she doesnt seem sick or anything..but i would like to know if there is anything i could do to improve the situation.

Your baby is teething and that is the problem. Apply a little Pansoral gel to her gums if she is uncomfortable.
