    Default need advice: more food or more boob??

    dd is teething (cutting first tooth) and not nursing! However she will nurse all.night.long! The only time I can feed her is when she goes down for a nap or at night. Should I make up for this lack of nursing with solids? Shes also extremely distracted and has been doing this pissed off back arch thing when i try to nurse her.
    I get so worried my supply will tank or she will wean herself. Currently I feed her twice a day, morning and dinner. Thoughts anyone?

    If you LO is under one, then no, you don't need to make up the "lack of nursing" with solids. Actually, I'm not convinced she actually has a lack of nursing if she's nursing all night long. Older, distractible babies often make up for the lack of daytime nursing with lots of nighttime nursing. Not so fun for you, but maintains baby's nutrition and your supply just fine!
