My DD is 6 monts old and she is a fussy little thing. She is teething (she has 1 tooth and the second one is coming through), but she was fussy since birth. I really don't know what to do. It's really hard to keep BF, because she doesn't seem happy. Her weight gain is fine, but she seems so unhappy most of the time. She doesn't play by herself at all and even when we try to play with her, it's extremely difficult to keep her from fussing. I thought she has dairy allergy, so I didn't eat anything with obvious and hidden dairy products. I was dairy free for 2 months, there was no obvious change.
I really don't know what's wrong with her. I offer her my breast everytime she fusses, which means every hour, or more often. When she naps, then it's more like every 2 hours. And usually she nurses, when I offer. Well, at least a minute or so. I have NO idea how often she nurses.
Can she be teething so long and if she is, how come nothing that should help with het teething pain, doesn't help?
What should I do? It's so difficult to see that I am doing great job nursing, cause she isn't a happy baby. I get tired with entertaining her for an hour. I barely survive whole day with her. What's wrong with her? Her pediatrican isn't concerned as she seems fine, she is gaining well. Should I push him harder?
