No, A baby will not starve itself. It's called a nursing strike. Babies need breast milk, just keep offering the breast and do not let her fill up on solids and don't give bottles.

No. Babies do not self wean. Toddlers & small children self wean. When babies are teething sucking may cause more discomfort than they are already in. She may seem like she's hardly eating for a while, just cut out the solids so she gets as much breast milk as possible. When that tooth pops through & she hits her next growth spurt, she'll be back on the boob like she is a newborn again! Rest assured, she is not self weaning.
