    Default is this ok?

    Is it ok to feed your little one even if they don't show signs of hunger? My LO has been nursing at 4:00 a.m. I get up at 5:30 for work and have to be out the door by 7:15. I didn't wake my LO up until 7:00 today, but I have always fed him before we leave. He wasn't showing signs of hunger, but I really wanted him to eat before we left just because i only get to nurse him 2 other times during a typical day.

    He ate, which made me feel good. I was just curious.

    Thanks!

    I always give my girl a feed just before I am going out with her.

    for eg today I was going out at 1pm I got her up at 12:30pm ..she had been asleep since 10am gave her a feed then went out. I usually give her a feed when we get home as well especially if we have been gone a couple of hours.

    Perfectly fine. Most women nurse before they leave. I actually do a sort of dream feed with DD before I leave for work.

    I usually feed my DD right before I leave too. DH calls it a "splash-n-go"!
