Re: Pediatrician recommends no nighttime feeding
My pediatrician has been telling me the same thing since my DD was about 4 months old. I ignore him. He also told me to let her CIO, like that was a medical opinion. He has shown he knows nothing about breastfeeding, so I've decided it's just not an area where I'll take his advice. When I took my DD in because she was really upset and wouldn't nurse (and was acting like it hurt her) he tried to tell me she was probably weaning -- this was at like 9 or 10 months, and it was obvious she wasn't. Do what you think is best -- there's no evidence it's bad for babies, and as the pps said, evidence points to the contrary.
