(This is in the PRO CC section FYI.)
I am at my wits end with DD. minimum 5 times a night waking up. It's time to call in the big guns ()
I just want to know if anyone has done the routine & kept up supply?
TIA for your answers

How old is your baby? I used Tizzie's routines as a guide before bub was 6 months old, because I felt more comfortable demand feeding, but I did follow her settling advice. Once my DS was 10 months old and well established on solids, I cut out his night feeds, and he started sleeping in longer stretches.

I haven't done CC, but at 6 months I would be less concerned about supply issues occuring than in the early months. At that age many bubs naturally start to sleep for longer stretches and that does not effect supply. Does she wake each time for a feed, or is it just comfort sucking? Maybe try feeding every other waking to start with and see how that goes before trying to stop all feeding overnight. At 6 months is it normal for bubs to wake at night for a feed, but I understand how 5 times a night is probably feeling very overwhelming and draining.

Yeah no luck for the longer stretches for me
I'm buying the book today and reading it over the next few days.

Hi Greenhorn - I follow Tizzie and haven't had any trouble with my milk supply. In the early days of the routine I found I was quite uncomfortable by feed time, but this settled down within a few days. All the best, it has saved my sanity!

Hi I have done it with both my kids. DS was 3 1/2 months and DD 6 weeks. I found it worked great with both of mine. I never had an issue with milk supply as the routine was planned to keep up and in the early days help produce more milk. Hope it work for you.

I wouldn't worry about supply all, towards the end of bf DD around 8 months, I was only feeding once a day, this went on for around 6 weeks and the supply didn't dry up at all.
