I think we are teething! I am about to pull out my hair! Trying to teach her how to chew on teething toys to help her find some relief but all she will chew on are her fists and rags.

She is drooling a ton, chewing on her hands/fists/blankets, fasting, biting, fussy (not colic), and shes waking a lot more from sleep for no real reason. The fasting is killing me but when she gets downright hungry she nurses well and hasn't bit down yet. The sleeping is also tolerable because we can get her back down with a few tricks. However the constant fussy is draining me. I have been wearing her around the house which is helping her some.

I have had PMS like symptoms a few times but just that one "is it a period is it pp bleeding who knows" moment. I have had cramping though, felt like I have had PMS a few times now. My OB said when I start spacing her nursing out to 4+ hours it will prolly come back. We have spaced out a few feeds because of how long she will sleep but nothing yet.

yep still breastfeeding around every 2hrs in the day! Im struggling to try and space out her feeds actually, as she is awake for an hr and half, has around half hr nap then wants feeding when she wakes.
Also struggling to get her to take a bottle of expressed, she just is having none of it.

My health visitor reckons that bfing only stops ur periods if ur undernourished? ! Not sure about that one..i wish it had stayed away to be fair its been reeaaally heavy. Tmi but I need to change tampax every hr!

Armywife that sounds pretty early for teething - im not sure we've had any teething yet but she is definitely getting dribblier and chewing on her hands a lot!

JOESPHINE, hang in there. I breast fed for a little over 9 months (pumping too) and my period was back in just under 3 months. My doc indicated the same thing, that if I wasn't eating properly while BFg that it would effect the cycle. She also said that every woman and their particular cycle is different so it can come at different times. I had a natural delivery.... the 1st one was very heavy, but the doc said it was "clearing out" so.....

We have given up on the bottle. She will take it from a cup or syringe but it takes forever.

I have never heard that one either but I was warned by my ob it could be heavy. He even said "you may have a super tampon, super maxi pad, and a towel between your legs." downright terrifying me to be honest! lol

I know it seems early too! I called my mom and she grabbed my baby book to check and I cut my first tooth at three months.. it was a bit longer before I cut the next ones though. --- I can feel a bump on her lower gum so we are just watching it to see what happens. Her ped said all the "symptoms" sound like it but she may not cut a tooth for awhile.. that she could be "pre-teething?" gotta look into that. We are getting orajel today though see if it helps.
