Re: 10 mo nurses mostly at night...and hard!
Extremely busy babies can definitely get into the habit of reserving their demand for nighttime. Nighttime is boring, so baby isn't missing much by nursing all the time. During the day, nursing might mean that he could miss a visit from the mailman! Or not get a chance to explore that exciting toy over there. Or that bit of dirt on the floor. Or his own toes!
The key to getting a near-toddler who is reverse cycling to nurse more during the day is often to make the daytime a little more boring. Take baby into a dark, quiet room, with no toys or other competition for his attention. Hopefully when he's bored and calm, he'll nurse more.
More daytime nursing doesn't necessarily mean less night-waking, unfortunately. There are babies who nurse really well during the day and yet wake up all the time. Ha ha! What amazing senses of humor they must have.
