hi all ,my 4 months and 24 days old daughter is not taking milk from 15 days, as soon as I lie down her in my lap for breastfeed, she starts crying and refuses breast feed. I went to two paediatricians,they checked and said nothing is wrong and everything is fine neither she has cold nor any other problems but still she is not taking milk but cry bcoz of hunger. My mother n grand mother checked her pallet and she found chor daant. Every other are saying the same that she has chor daant so any of u aware of it what it is and what to do so that it get disappear and she starts to take milk like before right now she doesn't takes bottle nipples inside her mouth and with bowl n spoon she cries. And formula milk does not suit her. And for having let down milk, it is required for her to suck atleast once. I could nurse her when she is sleeping only but it will not be possible full day and she does not suck much when sleeping. Please help me mothers i m very much worried bcoz his weight is not increasing like before. Expecting quick replies. Many many thanks in advance.....

We can totally understand your concern. Teething usually starts anytime from 6-9 months, but some babies are early teethers. Swollen and painful gums, Biting objects, drooling or saliva like fluid coming from mouth plus baby is irritable, refuses to eat or having problems in sleep, it all indicates that baby is on teething. You may not be able to see the teeth but you can feel it by passing your clean finger around baby’s gums. This is what we say as hidden tooth or chor dant. Try passing ice cube along baby’s gums or you can try rubbing your clean fingers on baby’s gums. Even applying little ghee may help in easing the pain. In addition you can check with your doctor on some teething gels which give relief to baby from pain and inflammation. Do not worry as its temporary, once the teeth are out, your baby will be fine. Regarding feeds, continue with breastfeeding as its the best food baby at this stage. You can always express out your milk and feed baby using bottle with softer nipples. Also once the pain is less, baby may be able to suck well.
