I posted a question about my 8month old's eating yesterday, and after reading the answers I have another question.
I had stated that my daughter BFs 4 times a day. She also eats solids for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She sleeps 11 hours a night, so that only leave 13 hours of awake time for me to feed her. But, people said I should be BF her 8 times a day. If I nursed her 8 times a day, and fed her 3 solid meals a day she would be eating 11 times in a 13 hour span.... that just seems like way too much to me. She also snacks on puffs, yogurt melts, and fruit throughout the day.
I don't want her going hungry if I don't BF 8 times a day, but if she's sleeping 11 hours at night isn't that a good indication that she isn't hungry?
