Re: Introduce a Schedule?
I still fed on demand when I returned to work and experience much of the same things you are. Although I worked an 8 hour shift and was away from baby for at least 9 hrs due to the commute. Even if he had a bottle right before I showed up to get him, he wanted to nurse. And he was a big snacker as well. I worried at times that he wasn't getting enough, but honestly, he regualted himself. He got what he needed and was happy to be nursed on demand. I could imagine trying to restrict nursing would be very stressful, moreso than worrying if he is getting enough. It really sounds like you just need to find your groove...a routine of sorts with your work schedule. It will develop, just go with the flow and you will fall right into it.
