My DS 3.5 mo started to teething last week with all the drooling sign, sucking fingers or anything he touches. On the weekend his cheek started to be swollen and very fussy. His gum must not be comfortable and no apetite for nursing (keep comes on & off). I havent given him anyth to soothe except teething toy & cold cloth.
Its been 4 days now and though I persistently feeding him as often as I can during day & night (i stay in bed most times and just feed whenever he wants), he sucks a lot but not opening his mouth big enough to latch. I tried so many times and just wont work. Not sure if its because the gum is hurting him. I tried sit down nursing and still not working. Whats left is my boobs are not emptied and always full all time. I tried to express minimally to avoid oversupply and engorgement.
Is this teething and latching issue normal? How long does it take to be normal again and is there any tips to correct his latching?
Thanx so much ladies.
