Teething and Eating
Jul 25, 2005
[B][COLOR=RoyalBlue][FONT=Verdana]Hi mamas,

My 4 month old son has been eating wonderfully for months. The doctor told me to start him on rice cereal 3 weeks ago which has been going well. He's been eating 3 tbsp cereal + 5 oz. formula first thing in the morning. The next feeding he eats the same. Then, all the other feedings are strictly bottle - 5 to 6 oz. each time.

Just yesterday, he started fussing during one of the afternoon feedings and didn't want his bottle. He did want to bite my finger though. Then I noticed how bad he was drooling, and wanting to bite every rattle and finger in sight. After some tylenol, he felt better and took his bottle. My questions are:

1. Am I correct to assume he's teething this early?
2. I'm supposed to introduce veggies to him. If he's teething, how will I know if he has a reaction to the new food?
3. How/when do I introduce the veggie? Does he still take a bottle then? Do I need to start cutting out some of his bottles?

Sorry for the loaded question. My doctor was very vague on all this..........
