    Default Teething and no bfing

    My 8.5 old dd just got her first tooth about a week ago. I have noticed since then she has not really bfing like she usually does. Is this common after they get teeth? Any suggestions.

    In some babies, teething can cause more pain when nursing. Another thing to think about is that often a second tooth will be only a week or so away from the first.

    That what I was thinking too, that her 2nd one will be coming soon. But she eats her solids just fine.

    That makes me worried... LO is 8 mos and we are still waiting for teeth.

    He's been in a lot of pain lately, so I think a tooth is near...but, I pray it doesn't affect bf'g.

    I'm nervous about teeth - just don't know what to expect.

    My 8.5 month old has 2 bottom teeth and 4 uppers just coming in. I don't think it has affected her bf'ing too much. In fact, sometimes I feel like she wants to nurse more often b/c it's soothing the pain.

    with pp-some los seem to want to nurse more -mine does- and others less. But dd does have way less interest in solids while teething-except yogurt-maybe its cooling on those hot little gums
