    What a range! Thanks Refresh.
    I have spent a lot of time thinking it must be my storage capacity or my supply or my whatever. I guess that's normal with you're first?

    We have had some supply issues as ds has a terrible latch (long story) but I work very hard to put in the 'demand' for the 'supply' he needs by pumping after feeds. He expects the boob to be a constant tap, little monkey

    Did you have more milk for any particular pregnancy?

    My boy is 9 months and feeds 4 times per day (7am, wake up from morning nap, wake up from afternoon nap, before bedtime). The two middle feeds are short ones. Bubba eats solids pretty well, including afternoon tea which we've just started.

    Yep it gets really easy. From 8/9 mths my DD1 could pull top down-latch on- feed-latch off and go back to sleep without waking me.

    I was getting 8-10 hrs a night. I only woke if I was feeling drafty on my boob and would re adjust my top.

    I'd sort out the nipple attachment addiction first using eliz pantley nipple pull out method as it's important that they can fall asleep without the nipple in their mouth. It's pretty rough on them otherwise. Then you are cruising to uninterrupted sleep heaven.
