Just curious if one is more common than the other.
DS has always had a routine during the daytime. He wakes up hungry, and after he eats he will play and be happy for a while, then he will get fussy and go down for a nap until the next feeding.
I always thought it seemed kind of backwards, because I was told to look for early hunger cues and that falling asleep is a sign of being full.
Now (at almost 4 months) he is starting to change his routine. He has been getting up at 5:30 and not eating until 7, and he's starting to wake up way before his late morning feeding too. The trouble is, he gets really cranky when he gets sleepy, and it makes nursing difficult. He won't stay latched on for more than a minute or two before he pulls off just to fuss. I've examined his mouth, no sign of thrush or teething. And it really only seems to be a problem when he's been awake for a while.
So... just wondering about others' experiences with nursing and naps with little ones.
