So despite my best efforts my son (7 mos now) has reverse cycled while I am away at work. He's also very go go go so I think nursing during the day was asking him to be too still too much.
Now our night feedings are the constants and the day feedings are touch and go. At night he drinks a HUGE amount of milk- I would guess 6-8oz per feeding just based on the size of my boob and what I know the pump would return at that size. I do get to see him at lunch and he will nurse then. He does love baby led solids- and eats a fair amount during the day but milk is always offered first.
Nursing Feedings -
8PM (to bed)
occasional small bottle at 9am or 3pm
During the day he's at a home daycare, and previously he was taking a bottle well but when we stopped giving him big bottles (5+oz) and tried to instead give two he just decided to skip the bottles all together.
I work full time and we are getting by with a sidecar arrangement, but I just wonder about pumping during the day.. how much how often? I also wonder if this will most likely continue until he's ready to wean or if this is a stage?
Looking for some personal experience stories and long term results of this reverse cycling.
PS - What are the best nighttime diapers for tall boys? We are super soaking ALL (cloth and disposable) by the second nurse, and he screams when I change him at night he just wants to nurse and sleep. Not sure how to handle that either.
