My son (4 mos) just started throwing fits this week. Usually, I can always breastfeed him when he is fussy and he will either calm down or fall asleep. This week, he has been really grouchy. He has had several "fits" which I define as times when I try to breastfeed him and he screams. He seems to actually scream louder when I try to feed him. No temperature. I think he might be teething. Today he was screaming, I tried to breastfeed him and he only screamed louder. I gave him tylenol, teething tablets, oragel, and gas drops because he was so upset. I felt terrible that I could not help him. Then I gave him a bottle of pumped BM and that helped. He slowly calmed down. Then we played and then I tried to nurse him to sleep. He smiled and played while nursing. Is this normal during teething? If so, how do you pump enough to only give bottles? (I already have a borderline supply isse and am on Reglan). Any advice?Answer Question
