My daughter is 2-1/2 months old and we believe she may be teething because she has many of the symptoms I've read about online. She started showing symptoms last week. Before then she had started sleeping 5 hours at night. Sometimes I would wake her after 4 hours because that's what my BF book said but most of the time I let her sleep if I didn't feel engorged. During the day she would take 2-1/2 to 3 hour naps. Now I'm lucky if she sleeps for 1 hour and then after her midnight feeding last night she wouldn't sleep unless she was in the bed with my husband and I... something we NEVER got in the habit of doing because we didn't want her to become used to it. Before this phase began she slept great in her crib in her nursery... we kept her in our room until she outgrew her bassinet... she's a long baby! lol.
Anyway, I'm having a hard time figuring out if it is, in fact, teething that is causing her to be so extremely fussy, sleepless, and frantically chewing on her hand or if it is just another phase. I also noticed she doesn't eat as well. She will eat then pull off then latch back on then pull off again...
Did anyone else's children start teething this early? Does this even sound like what the problem is??
SORRY FOR RAMBLING!
