Re: ffld and how to get LO to take more milk at a feeding?
I don't think that she's nursing frequently because she's not taking "enough" at a feeding- I think she's doing it because breastfed babies usually take small, frequent feedings instead of large, infrequent ones. 2-3 oz per feed is normal intake throughout the first year. The idea that babies should go long periods between feeds and should sleep through the night- that idea comes from the feeding patterns of formula-fed, scheduled babies. It's just not normal for an infant to go long periods without eating.
At this point, "sleeping through the night" is defined as one stretch of 5-6 consecutive hours of sleep. You're getting that, so IMO it makes sense to find a way to make your nighttime parenting easier. Go to bed when the baby goes to bed. Sleep with the baby so that you can feed in bed, hopefully in a semi-sleeping state, rather than getting all the way up.
