    Default Is this the start of a strike?

    Today was a weird day with dd. Actually the whole weekend has been weird. She started about two weeks ago and would clamp down or just bite my nipple. Not a big deal she would let go when I jumped or I tell her to stop. Nothing bad I did not yell just lost my breath.

    Anywho, I tried to feed her a few times and she would not nurse. I took out 8oz of frozen milk and she drink the first 3oz in 20min and fell asleep. Three hours later I gave her 5oz after getting tired of trying to get her to nurse. She drank her bottle in 40min and enjoyed biting the nipple and stuff. Dh thinks she really wanted food not milk but took what I gave her. I did get her to latch on about 1hr after the bottle but all she wanted was to suckle(sp).

    I think dh is right she just wants more food, but I also think she just did not like the breast today? anythoughts?

    Right now I give her 2oz jar at breakfast and 2oz jar at dinner. Then she bf on demand about 7x's a day for an average of 8min. Except just before bed and naps she will nurse for about 30min average.

    Has she started teething yet? Lance bites the bottle nipple a lot when he was teething, and their eating habits can get erratic when it starts.

    She as been "teething" for a few months with no results. She is fussy, sleep patterns are all over the map. She wakes from a nap and screams and crys. I pick her up and she a falls a sleep.
