My DD is currently 3.5 MO. she has always been BFed.
Since last week, her drooling has increased a lot, so much that if we dont wipe her off, she can get her torso wet within minutes. She chews on almost anything that comes near her mouth, and tries fit both her fists in her mouth, trying to chew on them. Not only does she chews, but also sucks vigorously. Luckily she hasnt started chewing on my nipples while feeding. i am wondering if these are signs of teething. If so, isnt it a bit early ?? She also has this period of shouting or screaming in evenings which werent there before. She doesnt seem uncomfortable or has tears in her eyes but just likes to take her voice to the highest pitch possible combined with fists in her mouth. Sometimes i cant make out if she is hungry or enjoying her newfound vocal capabilities
How soon can one expect teething ?? Most resources i found say around 5 Months..
Her nursing schedule hasnt changed much, and she gets fed on demand and since last week she has got only one bottle of EBM. normally she gets one every two or three days depending on my schedule. Recently she has also started rejecting the bottle. Last time we gave her a bottle, she drank only 1.5 oz in a period of 4 h (almost half her usual amount) and breastfed later at an increased frequency.
ANy comments are welcome.. TIA
