I have noticed LO spending more time at the breast. Which is really great for me considering we have issues with refusal. But I am meaning longer sessions but still refusing at times. Anyhow, last night he nursed from 8:30-11pm and he probably fell asleep on the breast and was just sucking at times, and then wake up and feed again. But most of it felt like real feeding. ANyhow, tried to put him down to bed at 11pm and he woke right up to feed again. Then at 2:30am to feed and I fell asleep while he fed. I woke to him still sucking/feeding at 4am and he wanted the other side. So he fed at 4am, then again at like 6:30 and 7:30 am. And he is nursing for a long time.
He is 4 months today. Could this be a 4 month growth spurt. I dont recall him doing this for any other growth spurts. Except the first few weeks.
I am one tired mamma today.
I guess I do have to say considering all the struggles of breastfeeding we have had and ALL OUT STRIKES, I am a little happy that i can say he nursed well 6 times in a row.
