Is he waking up in the night?

Or just 2 a day?

I am at 4x per day my LO is 9 months. The best sesson is the 1st one of the day. The others- no one can be n the room- no phone, tv, etc

I also now have a little toy for her-

I think they get distracted!

He wakes up at least 2-3 times at night.

Maybe teething?

Not sure....

Mine STTN and only nurses during the day-

maybe yours gets the most of the milk at night?

I also do 3 meals during the day as well-

Mine goes to bed around 6:30.

But, when does not want to nurse - she fights it

Do you offer to BF before a meal or after?

I do it before so sh will be hungrier and take some

here is our day:

BF 7:15/7:30

breakfast: 8:00

9:00 nap

10:30 -BF

11:30/12:00 lunch

1:30 nap

3:30 BF-followed by tiny snack- just added the snack in a few days ago- she seemed still hungry

**Now I BF prior to dinner- I used to do after dinner before bed- BUT- she stopped wanted to nurse then - maybe not hungry or just did not want to? I don't know- so, I offer it before dinner

5:00ish- BF

5:30 dinner

6:30- I offer it again- but, usally she does not want any- if sh does maybe a min

story and bed for the night

That's our day

So, I do BF before meals so she can take what she wants first

That seems to work for us- she for sure takes the most 1st thing-
