Feeding with dd going really well, she's 13 weeks and we've just come out the other side of a growth spurt all ok. Last couple of days she has been pulling at my nipple til she pops off (ouch!) and fussing a bit. My boobs are getting quite full in between feeds as don't think she's taking a full feed. I'm letting her eat as much as she wants. Why's she doing this?
Teething would be my first thought! Dd did this a lot, she also mastered the throw head to the side with nipple between gums move which is Teething powder before feed (all herbal) really helped. Boobs will be fuller from growth spirt and should settle in a few days. Dd now has 7 teeth (at 7.5 months) and we're still bf happily.
Yep definately teething - dd did this whenever her teeth hurt (she's 18 mo & has been teething since she was 10 weeks old & still only has 3 teeth ). I always knew her teeth were bothering her when she did this. If I'm completely honest, I didn't even notice the pain after a while! Calpol also helps (I never noticed any difference with teething powders or things like bongela). As a pp said, your boobs are probably bigger because of the growth spurt. As long as she's having plenty of wet nappies & isn't losing weight, no need to worry.
