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-
