    Default Fo I feed him too much???

    OK, most women ask if they are feeding theirs enough or feel like they are nursing all of the time and are tired. I went through both of those with mine. Now in am in a completely different situation. My ds is 6 1/2 months old. I work from home and I feed on demand. I find myself putting him on my breast just so he will either go to sleep or just be quiet and content while I work on the computer. (he is nursing right now) He is 20 pounds and eats some baby food. Also, anytime he gets agitated or upset or hurt, I latch him on because I know it makes him happy. Can I over do it???

    (we also work from home, DH is a web developer)
    My husband is also a web developer and built me a site that I sell clothes on. I have to be on my computer a lot and I have to do a lot of work that requires me to not hold, console or please him. So I put him in a walker and do what I can while he whines for me to pick him up. Once I can sit on the computer I 'Pop him on". He confort sucks, but sometimes I feel the milk come down a couple of times. Usually I have to get back to work so I out him back down and he fusses again. Its a never ending cycle. My DH takes him every once in a while for 15-20 min incriments. Its hard trying to work from him with a BF baby.

    Thanks! I loved having the photo done!
