Re: need help, baby still constantly eating
At 6 months my DD is still eating thru the night vs sleeping. We also co-sleep. Mon - Fri I nurse all morning, go to a full time job where I pump, come home and nurse thru the evening and do the nurse all night thing again. On weekends no pumping, just nursing. Yup I'm tired, but 6 months from now I'm going to look back on this time and long for these days wondering why it all went by so fast.

I'm not telling anyone how they should approach this, but that's how it was. Since that trip I've flown domestically with her once w/out DH and just this week flew internationally, this time with DH thank goodness. And you know what? We survived it all w/out issues -- it takes planning, energy, diligence and yes - nursing. But moms have superpowers. We carried that baby for 40 weeks, give or take, we gave birth. We can DO this!
