Anyone else teething? Any advice? I was planning to let him chew on a wet washcloth. I don't think he can hold a teething ring yet.

It's a crazy life!
In my defense though, he didn't have the typical fever and drooling, just the chewing on his hands, which he's been doing off and on since birth. Just not so intensely. Since then he's gotten the fever and drooling.
I had to run out on Saturday and buy teethers - I figured I had months to worry about those.
And I'm glad to hear that the weirdness with BF is related - tonight I couldn't get him to latch on. He'd just scream when I brought him near the right breast, and he wouldn't stay latched on the left for more than 5 seconds. So I finger-fed him a little bit and he fell right to sleep.

The bottom ones usually come in first.
He is also doing the chomp on the nipples, suck a few times, pull on the nipple routine. I'm worried he's not eating enough? But then sometimes he will nurse nicely.
Any suggestions for that? Is he getting enough? He'd be fussy if he wasn't, right? Just when I thought we were starting to get everything sorted out.
