My son is 7 weeks old & cluster feeds in the evenings between about 5.30-9.30pm. He's been doing this for the last 3-4 weeks. My toddler goes to bed at 7pm, so it makes his bedtime very tricky as my OH often isn't home until after 7pm. I wondered roughly how long this will go on for? I've been trying to remember things from when my 2 year old was little but I've forgotten everything .
I second the using a sling to breastfeed. I used a ring sling with my newborn for feeding in the evenings. I have a 4 year old as well and he needs to have his bedtime routine at the time when she would be doing her clusterfeeding. That made it easier for me and she became a part of his routine, she could drink while I read to him etc. And I would get his pajamas on real quick while she took a little break in her feeding. Also if you usually do a snack time during that time then get it ready to go before she starts clusterfeeding. Fill up a cup with juice for your son so its ready if/when he needs it. Cut up veggies or whatever you want to snack on for yourself during that feeding time so that its pre-prepared before the clustering starts.
I've been feeding my little lad since 3 weeks whilst in his sling as I have to do my horses... I have a wrap, once you get the hang of tying the wrap and positioning baby all you pretty much have to do is get your boob out
