Hi, I am a first time mom of a 5 month old daughter. We have had struggles with breastfeeding from the beginning. I pumped and bottle fed her for the 1st 6 weeks since she wouldn't latch and I had bleeding issues. She has been doing well since 6 weeks of age when I quit pumping cold turkey and gave her only the breast. She was eating very often, every 1 1/2 to 2 hours while at home and every 3-4 at night. Then about a week ago she started getting fussy and crying before naps even when I would offer to feed her. She used to fall asleep after feedings. She still seems hungry, but now there is the crying uncontrollably, no matter what I do. I have tried using the oragel on her and waiting and trying to feed her later, but nothing seems to be working. Also she isn't sticking to her bedtime which we established a few weeks ago. She never used to be a trouble and I could get her to sleep when she was tired. We even drove her around and she stayed awake. Does anyone know what is happening and if it is teething??
