I have found that my son and all of my friends kids have been through the same thing. Everyone has said the same thing, They eat when they need to. My son tends to stop eating and then has a growth spurt, he tends to eat heaps just before the growth spurt! I hope that your daughter starts eating more soon.

I have a 7.5 month old son, and he went off his food for about 2 weeks before his 1st tooth came through the skin. Maybe your daughter's tooth is a little slow coming through, but giving her problems. I gave my son finger foods, like vegemite on toast. This was rough on his gums and helped his tooth come through. Milk arrowroot biscuits are another good one, as they go soggy quickly and won't get stuck in their throat. Good luck. She will eat when she is hungry, but in the meantime, just keep up with her bottle, and keep a check on her weight.

My son is 8 1/2months old now, but about a month ago he went thru the same thing but it only lasted about 2 weeks as we have now found out he was teething.
I would suggest taking her to the doctor to see if maybe she has a tummy bug or something.
