Ok so i have been brestfeeding my daughter for almost six months ?When i nurse her now she whines alot. Is this because im not making enough milk for her or because she is teething. Also the day before i started supplementing she had just a little bit of diherea well not full blown i could just tell her stool was just a little bit looser than usual. Now that im supplementing she has had diherea bad for a few days. shes not running a temperature. Is this normal with the transition could it be her teething. Is she allergic?Answer Question

If you were nursing on demand, you were making plenty. The whining was most likely the teething. The diarrhea is most likely from the formula. It can be pretty rough on a baby's tummy.

Why are you supplementing? It sounds like you are doing great with breastfeeding. If she is whinny at the breast she could be overstimulated (nurse in a quiet spot with little distractions). She could also have thrush or it could just be teething. In any case the best thing for her body is breastmilk. Could you imagine going through teething and the discomfort of switching your main source of nutrition especially to something that is more difficult to digest and hard on the belly at the same time? You are breastfeeding and doing great! Continue to offer the breast and check about the thrush. Good Luck!
