    Re: what is going on?!

    Yes teething can actually cause all those problems including spitting up, although I think if the spitting up is frequent I think it would more likely be a tummy issue. My DD has been doing the same...

  21. Re: Frustrated with breastfeeding a non-eater

    This is true alot of the time, but not always. I have a fast letdown and the nipple shield actually slowed down the flow, keeping her from getting as much milk. But we are weird in that way.:lol
