I'm mainly just looking for other mamas who can relate...
My daughter is 7 months old and has, since she was about 3 months, nursed better while asleep or really sleepy. When she's awake, I'm usually having to switch her back and forth to keep up her interest, sing songs, etc. Otherwise she's often off before my milk even lets down (and it doesn't take long!) It's like she's rather be doing most anything besides nursing. I know I have plenty of milk, so I don't think she's disinterested because of that.
I should add that I offer her to nurse far more often than she cues (she would probably only nurse 5-6 times a day if I only fed her on her cues), so I feel like she often isn't very hungry during those awake nursings...and nurses better while asleep because of a sucking need.
Am I overthinking this? Does it matter? Will she ever be a great awake nurser?
