    My LO is 8months and on solids during the day. As much as I love breastfeeding him, I feel I need to cut down slightly. I found out I'm pregnant and my milk supply does feel lower than before I fell pregnant. He wakes up on a bad day every 2hours at night for a feed. Just wondering if anyone else experienced this and what they did to tackle it? My body is exhausted and I never feel rested, before it didnt matter so much but now that I'm pregnant I need all the energy I can get.

    I would love to get him to feed once at night and once in the morning. Mostly though I want him to sleep longer at night.

    I've tried giving him formula before bed, but he only takes a little bit and still wants breastmilk.

    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Sorry, don't know what to tell you, except I'm in the same situation (not preggo, tho). My 6-month-old wakes ever 1.5 - 2 hours all night for the past 3 weeks. I thought it was a growth spurt, then his teeth came in so I thought it was that, but he's STILL doing it. I feel like a zombie. Wouldn't be so bad, except that I work full time. I'll be watching this thread!
    Good luck!
