Sounds like the teething is the problem and his sore gums are putting him off feeding. It is possibly worse during the day. All you can do is try to offer him as much relief for the gum pain as you can and keep offering feeds. He should get back to normal once the teething pain is a bit better.

Get some bonjella or any other medication for teething and use it just before a feed to try and give him some relief then. Chill teething rings and let him chew on those just before you feed him. Look in your local stores and see if you can get a baby safe feeder to put the frozen banana chunks in and let him chew on that before a feed top help numb his gums and give him some relief.

are you trying to give him milk to drink in addition to the usual breastfeeds? maybe he just doesn't want anymore milk feeds. have you started weaning yet? perhaps he is looking for solids now as opposed to more milk feeds. this might explain why he;s waking in the night, he may be hungry.
