Re: Need help! Supply, baby's weight etc.
One way to deal wiht tooth brushing is to not use a toothbrush- just get in there with a clean wet washcloth and wipe the teeth down. It's often less traumatic for baby to have a finger go in her mouth than a brush. You could also let her brush her teeth along with you. She may learn better by watching and imitating.
I don't see anything wrong with your baby's growth pattern. As long as you are nursing on demand, your milk is capable of meeting pretty much all her nutritional needs. Many babies continue to be mostly breastfed until well into their second year, and many are not interested in solids until well after they turn one. Both my kids didn't eat much solid food until 14-15 months.
It's very normal for weight gain and growth in general to slow as baby goes through her second 6 months. Once a baby is mobile, she starts putting her calories into motion instead of layering them on as fat. This is normal for a breastfed baby- but formula-fed babies show the opposite pattern (relatively lean in the first 6 months, relatively fat in the second 6). Often docs measure breastfed babies on charts developed using data from formula-fed babies, and this can result in the breastfed baby looking "too fat" in the first 6 months and "too skinny" in the second 6.
