Nursing a toddler and newborn, advice needed
So my 17 month old nursed so much today that she refused dinner.
Obviously I knew she was going to be clingy, my first two were also 17 months apart, but I did not nurse my eldest.
My thought is that she is feeling uncertain right now, and seeing the baby nurse, and her not nursing is bothering her. She is just trying to establish her place and in a few days when it is less new things will go back to normal.
Is that an accurate assessment?
Also, I have a bad habit of not eating enough ( or properly spaced) , and therefore gaining weight, with two nursing I really want to make sure that I am eating well enough and often enough to keep up with everyone and help my body lose some of my baby weight.
Any suggestions on that front are welcome as well!
