So Ally is currently waking 2-3 times a night for a fabulous feed. Normally twice...but during the day (this has only been over the last couple of days) she is just NOT feeding well! She's on and off, snacking, distraction central, cross with me. There is no rhyme, reason, pattern....anything!
She wants solids, but as we blw, I don't think for a second she's filling up on those, as we always have a nice food carpet after a meal
She's had tops 5 feeds today, compared to her 'usual' 7 or 8.
It's stressing me and worrying me a bit...nothing intervened between Lizzie and boob
What to do? I'd obviously rather she fed well during the day, and less at night...but at the moment, I am actually relieved she's waking for them!
We BLW aswell & my lo did the same thing & also had a nursing strike at the same age ( that lasted about 3 days) i offered her my milk in a doidy which she was happy with & i was happy as she was happy to feed during the night,.
I think sometimes we forget how clever our lo are & they wont starve themselves
Probably getting more at night so feeding less in the day. Sometimes when they are awake they are sooo busy looking at everything and trying out new things they are learning that eating just isn't as important. And then at night there is less to do so they eat more to make up for the less during the day.
If you are getting the proper number of wet diapers then your LO is getting enough.
