I need help setting up a flexible routine for dd and myself. I feel like at 6 months we should have a natural flow to our days.
I am away for work tuesdays through thursdays and she is great with my dh. He feeds her EBM on demand which could be every 2,3,or maybe 4 hours. DD drinks about 3oz but maybe 4 or 2oz. she also has about three bottles between 8pm and 6am and co sleeps with him when I'm not home.
When I'm home she nurses every 1.5 at night which is the only thing I can count on.
During the day however it seems like we nurses non stop when we are quiet or could go for hours and hours without getting fussy if we're running around town. Her cues aren't very noticeable or really there? I also never really feel a let down while bf but i do when i pump.
i am pumping every 2.5 3 hrs at work but stop from 8pm to 3am so I can sleep and have energy for the next day. could that be affecting my supply while I'm home.
what do most 6 moth old babys do??? other sahm from our play group have it down nurse awake, naps alone and regular cues when your not doing something right.
DD is content, but I feel wishy washy the way we nurse and when she naps.
