Appetite

my 8 month ol d baby is refusing to eat any of her solids.
she has 4 bottles of formula (210ml) and that is all.
she was fine of purity 2nd foods and started on 3rd foods week ago but now refuses. she also refuses any water, juice (never had) and olnly wants for formula. She used to sleep thro and is now very restless t night and cries in her sleep. She hs just got her 3 tooth. She grumpy during day

Is her lack of appetitie & bad sleeping coz her teeth?
Shud i get her to drink other liquids and not milk?

Her formula is still her most important food now so don't worry too much. If she prefers the Purity second foods let her stay on them for a while longer. Her present problem with feeding seems to be due to her teething.
