I posted a few days ago (maybe a week?) about DD's teeth, I really need some encouragement ladies!!! We've been pretty lucky. No major issues. BF has been - for the most part - easy.
She's got five teeth now and they rub when she nurses. I've tried re-latching her, I've tried positioning her, I've tried lanolin around the nipple. It hurts and it irritates me. I'm having a really hard time with this!!! I wanna cry.
DH has suggested I pump more and we give her more bottles. I'm on the fence about this, but seriously considering it now.
I plan to wean after 12 months. I know it is good for them to continue, but I originally thought I'd wean at 6 months. I know it may take a month or two for her to be fully weaned but I will be starting at 12 months. (She's 9 1/2 months now). Up until now I though 12 months was close. Now I don't know if I can make it until then!!
