Okay, so Rory had her 9 month check-up yesterday. Dr. mentioned cutting down her nursing sessions to about 3 per day so that she will take in some more solids. Does this seem right to you? When she asked about Rory's sleeping patterns, I did admit that she sleeps with me and has access to my breasts throughout the night. The dr. said that was fine. I feel like I'm getting mixed messages! Should I really stop nursing on demand? By the way, I'm a working mom so I really, really, really treasure the times I can nurse her. (I'm still pumping twice a day every day at work.)
I guess I was a bit quiet after she said this because when the dr. left the room, my husband kind of patted me on the back and told me that everything will be okay, Rory can nurse for quite a while longer. I'm so glad that he knows and understands how important my nursing relationship with Rory is to me and her.
