    Exactly how I've ended up with all mine (skipping a feed either me skipping it or DS2 skipping it).

    Well ds has reduced how much he s feeding at night as he is sleeping 3-4 hrs at a time whereas was previously lucky to make it to 1.5-2hrs.

    and he has been very fussy at my breast since getting sick so maybe hasn't been draining it properly.

    will keep up with the football hold for now to be safe.
