  • sorry, I never heard of that before. How old is your baby?

  • She just turned six months and has six interlocking teeth. I had to stop. But it seems like my belly is swollen or just fatter.

  • Not sure. I would call your OB

  • Hmmm... that's strange. I'd maybe call your doctor. I've never heard of that. Why would you have to stop nursing because your daughter has teeth, though? Was she biting? Maybe just telling her "No" and removing her from the breast would get her to stop after a couple of times. That's how I got my son to stop. Best of luck with everything.
