Hi there Jo!

Can you believe our little ones are four months old!!..Ellie was four months yesterday, and is also definately showing tething signs. I remember with Annie that the child health nurses say that it's most painful for them well before the actual tooth pops through as they move around in the jaw which causes great discomfort. My strategies included:

1. "Hyland" brand teething drops from the pharmacy. It's a homeopathic blend sold in most chemists (no prescription) and dissolves instantly on the tongue. Annie LOVED them and even now asks for "toothy tablets".
2. We freeze wet washers in the freezer which Annie liked to chew on, probably more useful as she got older and could manage to hold the washer in her mouth, but useful to remember for the future.
3. Baby panadol ("mothers friend") used regularly.

I reckon its pretty normal for the appetite to be affected. I used to just offer frequent small feeds and not get too stressed about that, seemed to keep everyone happy.

Good luck!
