OP I too did a bit of stretching out of feeds when my dd was young. We followed the parts of sos that worked for us. I agree with lots of the advice.. I stretched her out slowly, 10 or 15 minutes if I could. I used distraction so we'd go outside, look at things, go for a short walk etc. It worked really well for us BUT I found she still cluster fed in the late afternoon. So would sometimes feed twice or 3 times between 4pm and bed. However she continued to sleep well at night. I decided that was a good trade off for us. She was a happy and thriving bub. Good luck! Let us know how you get on.
