Ugh. I was just told that my 10 month old doesn't need to eat at night every time he wakes up. They know nothing about me or my kid or my situation. He is teething and going through a growth spurt. So yes one night he woke me up over 5 times. So. He usually only sleeps 4 hours, then 2 hours, then wakes me up every hour. He hates sleep and naps. It doesn't mean I shouldn't feed on demand. In the morning he likes to nurse every hour for 5 minutes. I think is his way of naturally fighting my oal. So. He is a big kid. So what. He is fine. I really don't care how many pediatricians told you your baby doesn't need to eat that much. They don't know my kid.
Sorry, had to vent. I don't think it would have bothered me except she said maybe I should get my milk checked. Maybe he isnt getting enough. So many moms get such bad advice for other moms and pedis. It makes me so sad. If I wasn't a seasoned nurser I might have really worried about that comment!
Btw thanks to this group I know better!
Just out of curiousity does/did your 10 month old nurse often?
