Hello, my baby boy turned 13. 5 months recently. from last two weeks he has started refusing food. and from last 3 days he donot eat at all.. i have consulted with the doctor and she said it could be teething.. Can it be oral thrush? or any other reason too? i am very depressed as he is not eating anything apart from breast milk

Hope you are doing well. Yes it could probably be teething and please be calm. Give him light meals like soups,chillas,idlis,dal rice,thin khichdi,curd rice and smoothies :) Give him little quantity at a given time and do not force feed. Give him food in short intervals and not in one go :) Lastly have patience,your child is all fine it's a phase which shall pass.
