Re: Baby fussing at breast before bed-HE
whenever my lo was fussy for our night time feeding (which was somewhat cyclic for the first 3-4 months of his life) i would just hold my ground and tell myself that there is milk in there and that he just had to be patient and wait for it. i didn't want to go down the slippery slope of giving a bottle b/c that was always going to be easier for him. i would just keep switching sides over and over until he was satiated. i also sang songs to him to try to get him to stay calm as he waited for my let down. still now at one year he gets restless waiting (only at night), but i just keep singing and he know he has to keep sucking and wait and his treat will be ready soon!
