I know there are probably a ton of questions on teething. I've tried sifting through them but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for.
My 4 month old seems to be teething. She's chomping on her fist, and tongue. Sucking her tongue and lips in and out - over the gums or so she makes kissy faces... I've tried teething rings, cold wet face cloths, my fingers, etc. I can sometimes soothe the pain a bit.
What I'm looking for now is ways to encourage her to eat when it seems that the latch irritates her gums. She gets extremely angry when she tries to eat. I'm afraid she's not eating enough. She's obviously hungry, but then it hurts so she doesn't eat. What can I do? It's almost 1:30 in the afternoon now and she hasn't really eaten since about 8am!! (I've managed to get SOME (a couple of min of off and on the breast) into her because I keep trying, but she hasn't had a proper meal.
