By 8 months babies are very busy. It sounds like she is forgetting to nurse until she is super tired. Doesn't she eat when she's sleeping, or does she fall off? Since she's nursing only when she's ready to fall asleep, there is not much sense in trying to keep her up, you'll just end up with a cranky baby that is not nursing enough. Try to offer her the boob more often, don't wait for her to come to you. My 11 mo will graze all day, but if it's been a while, I'll just show her my boobs & she'll come have a snack. If you lay down on the floor with your boobs out while she's playing, you'd probably be surprised at how often she nurses. Now, she's at that age, it may only be for a few minutes at a time. Remember, she's getting around & exploring. She's busy.

Anon 1034 you sound like a bitch wanting her children to conform to her convenience. But I don’t know you so I don’t judge. I am a mom to 3 & currently nursing an 11 mo. The last thing I need is attention. I lay on the floor while my daughter is playing all the time & play with her. If my boob is not already out, it’s a matter of minutes before she takes it out. That’s how we do it. And, SURPRISE!!!! People parent with different styles. I’m sure the OP would have better appreciated some advice concerning the way you did it than your rude anonymous comment about my reply.
By the way, it’s snack, not sneak.
