Re: Teacher Schedule
No, I don't think you should eliminate that 4:30 nursing session. If I counted right, he's getting breastmilk just 5 times a day, which is about right for a 9 month old, or maybe just a hair on the low side. Until a year, a baby's majority source of nutrition is supposed to be breast milk or formula, not solids. Cut out the 5th session, and I think you probably wouldn't be nursing enough to make that happen. I could be wrong... But I think the safest course of action would be to keep that session.
Once you're out of school, nursing will probably feel less exhausting. I know that after the close of the school day teachers are beat (my parents are both teachers), and want some level of release from the demands of children. Even their own!
