Quoting Kara-lynn:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Carissa's mommy:</b>" Her pediatrician doesn't want her going ... [snip!] ... can affect nursing try doing skin to skin, take a bath (or shower) together, lay in bed & just cuddle to encourage nursing."We tried skin to skin, I didn't think about taking a shower with her I will try that next time. I have been pumping and giving her a bottle when she does this last time I hand expressed and syringe fed her about an oz just so that I could get something into her. She loves water though so maybe the shower will help. I hope this teething thing slows down soon she is miserable poor thing having to go through teething at just 11 weeks old

Syringe feed if you HAVE TO get something into her, but if she is having plenty of wet diapers, I wouldn't. "I have the breastflow bottle she has to work harder to get the milk out of them then she gladly goes back to the breast lol. I have a really strong let down when I pump I can get 3ozs in less then a minute once the let down starts. I am looking into the teething tablets and I have chilled teething rings on hand at all times. I think part of the problem is she is so young and teething already she doesn't really understand what is going on or why she is in pain. I have numbed her gums before and she nursed afterwards
