Re: what is satisfied?
I think the short answer is that you don't. If she fusses and you offer the breast but she refuses it, then hunger probably isn't the issue.
Ok! How do you know your baby is satisfied after a nursing time no matter how long or short it is?
Everything you describe makes me think teething may be the issue. Putting things in her mouth, napping poorly, and a constant need to suckle are all very typical teething signs. It could also be a growth spurt, when many babies dramatically increase their feeding frequency.
No. I think solids are just going to add one more issue to the picture- you'll be wondering if she's eating enough/too much solids, or if her behavior is a reaction to something she ate. And since the diaper output you describe is normal, I don't think that "a better fill" is needed.
Do you think she may be needing to start solids or needing a better fill.
How does nursing feel? Are you experiencing pain or discomfort, or is the issue that you think your latch doesn't look right? A latch can look weird, but still feel fine- and if it feels fine, then it's okay.
her latch and suck is kinda not pitcure perfect by any means
Not necessarily. If she's doing a lot of comfort nursing, perhaps to soothe her sore gums, she may not be taking in a huge amount more milk than usual.
With all this nursing she should be wetting major...no?
That's okay. Some days your baby takes all you're making, leaving you feeling empty, and others she's not as hungry and leaves more milk behind, giving you that full feeling.
oh and some days i "feel full" and others like today wimpy..
