My LO is almost 6 months. weighed 17 lbs a few weeks ago. plenty of wets & dirties. I have OALD. Most dirty diapters are green or dark green.
For the past couple of months my LO will only nurse while he is sleeping. If he is awake, he soon falls asleep and sleeps through the rest of his nursing. He's only staying on 7 mins or so on each side before coming off.
It's inconvenient. I have to put him to sleep before he'll nurse. It started b/c he would get distracted, so i'd sit with him is his room with the light off. He'd fall asleep at the breast and then start nursing on his own. He's happy & active when he's awake. Naps well during the day and sleeps 5-7hrs at night.
My concern: I'd like to start introducing some solids in a couple of weeks. I read that I should try nursing before or after a "meal." How do I do that if he sleeps through his nursing session? Is there any reason why I shouldn't allow my LO to nurse while sleeping?
