    Thanks Maddieb. I can totally understand. He is not dehydrated. My only concern is he getting enough. he sleeps long streches during day time say for 3-4 hours when I had little bit of oversupply. Now the supply has either reduced or matched to his need(I am not sure). Now he wakes up even more during the night to feed (start of the sleep when my supply is lowest) he goes to bed by 9:30 after cluster nursing and he wakes up again at 11-12am, then again in 1.5 -2 hours, and then he starts to take little more long strech say 2-3 hours. He is nursing more than 12 times per day. Is that normal? But he doesn't seem crying or unhappy after every session. may get little fussy if the let down is slow. Is it possible that he is not getting enough either one of the night time sessions? I know I am part of the reason for this night waking since I was encouraging him yo nurse often during the night. One of my friend she has a 4 month old and she says her baby diapers are huge and heavy in the morning, its never been like that for me since I returned to work. I am so confused and worried over this again and again. and I am sorry for posting so much and troubling you.

    I am posting this here in the Breastfeeding Your Baby section, because this is the forum I have posted in the most. I will never forget my early days struggling to breastfeed my first baby, and so have always felt an urgency to help when moms have posted here in particular. With the forums closing in just a few days, I trust no one will mind! 14 years ago I made my first call to a La Leche League Leader. My first baby was 7 months old, and all my mommy friends with children the same age had stopped breastfeeding. My son and I had had so many struggles and breastfeeding was finally starting to feel natural and comfortable and…dare I say it? Easy. The last thing I wanted to do was stop, but because all my friends had stopped, I thought I was doing something wrong. The wise Leader I called (she later became my mentor when I became a LLL Leader) listened to my fears, and then she simply invited me to a LLL meeting. She joked later that it was the easiest help call she had ever received. For me, that short phone call was life changing. The mothers I have since met at LLL meetings, Leader events and LLL conferences gave me every tool that I have found important and helpful as a mother. Every mom I view as a mothering mentor to this day was part of La Leche League at one time or another. I started posting to these forums about 7 years ago. At first I did not post much, but eventually barely a day passed without me visiting the forums- some days, several times. I...

    After more than 10 years and 1.6 million posts, we’re sad to announce that the LLLI Mother-to-Mother Forums will be permanently closed on Monday, November 20, 2017, as the LLLI website is moved over to a new platform. We’ll be opening a new LLLI Breastfeeding Support Community on Inspire.com, a health-related online communities website. While smaller in scale than the Mother-to-Mother Forums, the new community will be similar in organization and function, and you’ll have even more control over your privacy. If you’re on Facebook, the LLLI Breastfeeding Support Facebook Group is an extremely active (25,000 members and over 1,000 new posts per month) private group, with LLL Leader moderators who screen and respond to every new breastfeeding question. Many local LLL Groups all over the world have their own Facebook groups as well. A huge thank you to all our members who’ve made this such a supportive community and helped so many mothers over the last 11 years. :love
