My 9 mo.old baby seems to wake up more now at night than she did before. I feed her good throughout the day and night before bed, but, my concern is that she is now using bf as a pacifier and not so much as feeding because as soon as I feed her she goes to sleep. She's doing this about 3-4 times a night. What have you done when this happens? When do they grow out of this? My doc says to let her CIO she doesn't need to feed that many times at night.Answer Question

I would allow her to 'CIO' fpr about 5-10 min. If it was just fussy crying and not distressed crying. Maybe try other forms of night time comfort rather rthan the breast if she crys to long or seems truly upset. Rocking, rubbing her back, walking the halls...She may just be self waking and then needing to figure out how to get herself back to sleep. It could also be a growth spurt. Pretty common at 9 months.

And I would like to say congratulations on still being a breastfeeding mother! My son is 2 now, and was breastfed until I was six, almost seven months pregnant (I just couldn't-no milk came out) so had it not been for this new baby due in january, I'd still be breastfeeding him! It's a wonderful thing. Good for you. We're a minority.
