I contacted you before when I have concerns about my milk supply for my second child, and you’ve helped me tremendously.
Now I have 3 kids, two sons of 8 and 5 years of age, and a baby daughter, she is 1 year 10 months old.
I was breast-feeding my sons till 2 years of age and almost 3 years of age; and by the age of my daughter, they were feeding only once at night, or even not at all at night. My daughter was also doing rather good at night, she was feeding one or maximum 3 times per night.
Until recently (one months ago) our work load has increased (my husband used to spend a lot of time at home with our kids, but he is on urgent projects for the last month and maybe for the next 2 months, so he works a lot during the day now; and I also got work increase, even though I work from home and usually stay close to my kids).
To help us deal with the kids and our household, we asked our Mother-in-Law (who is the sweetest woman ever, and very soft with the kids) to move with us for the next 2 months, which she kindly did. And, simultaneously, my 1 year 10 months old daughter started nursing 6-8 times per night.. We practice co-sleeping, so I don’t get up to nurse her, but while nursing my daughter scratches my elbows and underarms severely (when I try to stop her, she protests). After she is done with nursing, she pushes me with both hands away, turns to the other side and continues sleeping. I sometimes also continue sleeping, but sometimes it’s difficult to fall...
