Re: Increasing supply
Have you tried to alleviate her teething pain? My son gets pretty feisty while teething, wants to nurse constantly but then bites and thrashes about. For him, chewing on a cool wet washcloth for a few minutes before nursing seems to help get his pain under control enough to nurse nicely. Sometimes he goes for the frozen rings, but more often it's the washcloth. If you're pumping anyway, you could freeze that milk into "momsicles" which may be soothing. On the worst days I dose him with ibuprofen. I don't know much about how to increas supply, but maybe if she is not feeling as much teething pain, she will nurse more effectively. My LO also always tries to latch on in when I have him the shower with me, and loves to just do fly-bys where he clambers around and I sit or lie on the floor with my shirt off, so he has open access to somewhat short nursings.
