    Re: Fatigue? Is this normal?

    I'm trying some advice from Kellymom.com. Nursing every 2 hours during the day, every hour in the evening. Hoping that more daytime nursing will begin to limit the night nursing.

    Re: Fatigue? Is this normal?

    I'm not going to my doctor. I heard enough "6 months old is crucial age for babies to learn to self-soothe" BS from him.

    Re: When is it okay to quit?

    Have you tried expressing milk by hand? It's so much more gentle than a pump! It was faster for me too, because I wasn't having pain affecting let-down.

    I second the suggestion for your baby to...

    Re: Do I have any hope?

    Breast and bottle are different, so that breast fed babies are generally getting less at a time but more often.
