My LO is almost 5 months. He's a great nurser unless he's distracted. This means, I need to nurse him in his room in the dark in the rocking chair.
This would be fine except that I have a 2 year old who can't be left alone for extended periods of time. He comes up with me to get LO, but then LO wants to watch brother instead of nurse.
This causes me to HAVE to nurse him to sleep b/c he's hungry and sleepy - so he doesn't get as distracted.
It's not such a bad thing that he nurses to sleep, but we're also struggling to be out of the house. He won't nurse for any decent amount of time to get enough. That makes for a hungry baby, etc.
Do I just expect that if he's hungry enough, he'll eat? Other suggestions? I've tried a nursing necklace. He fiddles but still jerks his head back to watch whoever is in the room.
