Question: My baby is in his teething period & he has stopped eating everything. He only wnts milk. He used to eat dal rice & khichdi & different porridges but now he doesn't open his mouth.

Answer: Hello dear. It takes time for the baby to get back to normal once the teething settles. You can start with calcerea phos as it is homeopathic and helps babies in getting relief in teething. Some of the remedies to help if ur baby is teething-:
Often, something cold in your baby’s mouthhelps. Try a cold pacifier, spoon, clean wet washcloth, or a solid (not liquid) refrigerated teething toy or ring. Some experts say frozen teething toys are too cold and may hurt your baby’s mouth. Make sure to clean teething toys, washcloths, and other items after the baby uses them.
A hard, unsweetened teething cracker can be comforting. If your baby is older than 6-9 months, you can offer cool water from a sippy cup, too.
You can also massage her gums by gently rubbing them with your clean finger. If the teeth haven’t come in yet, you can let your baby gnaw on your finger.
If you’re nursing your baby, try dipping your fingers in cool water and massaging her gums before each feeding. That may keep her from biting your nipple while nursing.
Hope this helps.
