6.5 month, 12lb., 8+ wet diapers per day / BM's are every few days.
Recently she has been groaning, making funny noises and pushing my breast while nursing. Her latch is the same and nothing has changed in my lifestyle, i.e. feeding frequency (on demand) diet, medications (none), etc. I have never been able to feel my let down, so I don't know if it has to do with that changing to a slower than normal let down? She hardly ever gets bottles, so I know it's not her being frustrated of a slower flow.
The only thing I can think of is that she has truly started to teeth as I can see where 2 are coming in on the bottom and she has very fussy moments throughout the day that are unlike her. Is she acting weird because the nursing makes the teething pain worse? She doesn't act up when I nurse her to bed at night or throughout the night ... that has me even more confused!
Really hoping it's teething causing this behavior and I don't have anything wrong with my supply as she is already a very slow gainer and ped mentioned supplementing at her last appt. When I asked her what she thought of her weight, she said she was fine because she's following her curve, but then at the end of the appt. ped randomly asked how much I can pump. I hardly ever pump, but when I do I barely get 2oz. total. That is when she suggested supplementing because "whatever the max is you can pump, that's all baby is getting" which I know is complete BS!
TIA for any thoughts you may have on my situation!
