Re: Need a little reassurance - I know I'm being silly...
No, you're not being silly! 8 month old babies can be really distractible and can forget to nurse. So while I don't think you need to be a clock-watcher, it's a great idea to offer the breast if you feel like it's been a bit longer than you like since your baby last nursed.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
