My LO is only 5 months and showing early signs of teething. The last few nights (and a few daytime feedings) he has screamed and pulled off the breast. I try to switch sides and sometimes that works and sometimes he still refuses. I burp him and bounce him to release trapped air but he keeps screaming. He continually has his two fingers in his mouth and drools a bunch.
He also tugs at his ears or begins pulling behind his neck.
What should I do? I'm going back to work soon so he will be taking a bottle more often but I would like to Breast feed as much as possible until I go back. Anyone else deal with loss of appetite or breast refusal due to teething pain?
