My son is six month old and when he was three months his Dr said he was teething. He has had tiny white spotsw along his gums ever since. He is still showing teething signs, (pulling his ear, chewing on finger, etc.) But he still hasn't had any teeth break through. I know two other babies his age who have teeth now. Also, he has gone from nursing every two-three hours to every 4-5 hours. I'm worried about keeping my supply. Are these things normal?
No bashing please. Remember, "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all." ;)

Feedings do start to space out. It is important to make sure you aren't putting feedings off. It's easy to get too busy and the baby is stressed and can have a nursing strike or premature weaning. Babies do not self wean before a year. If that was what human babies did they wouldn't survive (before formula and modern medicine). I'm not saying you are doing this, it's just easy to start doing. It's good for baby and your supply to breastfeed whenever your baby is upset and wants to breastfeed (what some people call comfort nursing).
