since the child is teething, she would naturally have itching and pain, which would affect her intake. Give more of liquids and thin semi solids like breastfeed, juice, lasii, buttermilk, soup, thin dal, curd, custard, very thin porridge/khichri etc. Try feeding her at a gap of at least two hours and offer variety. Do take advice of your paediatrician for soothing gels.
