Lately Hannah has been a bit drooly, she chews on her fingers often, and some days is cranky in the daytime (which is not typical for her). I thought that this might be the beginnings of teething....but today when I was talking to my sister, she was quite insistent that these are signs that Hannah is not getting enough food from each feeding, and that I should start her on rice cereal. I had not planned on starting to give her cereal or solids until she was a bit older... I was wondering if anyone else has noticed these to be signs of "not getting enough"
For a bit of background.... Hannah is 16 weeks old, she is gaining well, though her weight gain has slowed a bit. I do not notice that she is nursing more frequently, but she has started to nurse on both sides in the past two weeks, whereas she previously only nursed from one side per nursing session. She seems to be satisfied after nursing.
