Just wondering if any of you BF moms eventually stop allowing continuous nursing on demand espeically everytime the baby wakes at night?
My DD is just over 11 months old and still nurses every few hours at night. I always put her back to bed by breastfeeding. Tonight she went to bed but woke up 1 hour later after I'd already had 2 beers. I'm not much of a drinker so this hasn't happened before. I didn't want to nurse her back to sleep and expose her to too much alcohol (I still felt very tipsy) and she was sooooooo upset. It was heartbreaking and nearly impossible to get her to calm down and relax enough to get back to sleep. It took 40 mins when it usually takes 20. I know she wasn't hungry becuase she nursed all evening and at bedtime an hour before waking. I almost never refuse nursing (like if driving or in the middle running an errands with no where to sit and nurse.) I work full time and pump during work. Cosleeping isn't for us.We don't supplement with formula.
Do most moms out there who BF do it on demand all night long until the child weens?
