My goodness, it's really getting to me now.....
DD1 was fully breast fed. She started sleeping 7pm-6am from 7 months. I never realised how lucky I was with her until now.
DD2 is 11 months old and is still waking 3 times a night to feed! She goes to bed with a feed at 7 then wakes at 11, 2 and 5am.
She did for a very short while go down to 2 feeds (occasionally 1 feed if I was REALLY lucky) but we are back to 3 feeds per night and I am so tired this morning that my eyes sting!
Is it wrong of me to expect or want her to drop two of those feeds? I'm reading conflicting advice online....some experts say a bub her age does not require feeds overnight, some day do it as long as she's demanding it.
DD2 doesn't take 'no' well. She'd wake the entire house up if I didn't feed her when she wants it.
She has 3 feeds during the day along with breakfast, lunch and dinner. She's a slight little thing but boy can she put her food away. She regularly eats more dinner than her older sister and often eats the same amount for lunch. Her breaky is smaller than big sis though.
Any advice, I could even do with just a bit of 'buck up kiddo, it will get better'......I LOVE my breast feeding relationship with her during the day. Love love love our snuggly milky cuddles but I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel annoyed and reluctant when I hear her wake for feeds overnight....
