Q:

Hi mummas,
So my daughter has started teething. Today morning she refused to have her breakfast. I give her ragi porridge, from a cup and spoon, which she has usually. I tried everything from changing her position, toys,singing , but she only wanted to breastfeed. I can see that she is really cranky. What can I do to ease her discomfort? She will be 9 months old in 9 days.

Don't worry. This is one difficult phase for kid and mother. Give BM for a while. and then try to feed some other things. Best is diverting and feeding.

Cutting of tooth is a hard phase for the baby who has teethed late. This is because the gums are extra hard. My mom used to tell me to rub the gums hard with a clean finger. This did provide relief for my babies. Make sure your hands are clean.

Oh boy.. Since u have already tried everything that is to be done... I would say plz don't give up n keep trying... Teething can be troublesome for some kids...
Also u can give ur baby some boiled and frozen carrot... Try to rub d gums with clean fingers,  it would give some relief to d baby...
Also if u breastfeeding... Plz keep doing that
