Ok! How do you know your baby is satisfied after a nursing time no matter how long or short it is?
LO is 5 months old-we made it this far-still needing mountians to climb but getting better. She puts EVERYTHING in her mouth even after nursing, sometimes fussy at breast, sometimes takes forever to end feeding esp when sleepy so she naps on me and wakes up really quick-she has been taking cap naps for the past two days-I had to take her off when she is not actively sucking or I dont hear swallowing cause my family needs me or I have to pee. Then she wakes up within 10 mins or so crying=-reoffer breast and she takes me or not. What is a satisifed look after nursing-she nurse ALOT and I mean ALOT- like sometimes every 1/2 hour....their is no consistancy with her and we are still tyring to understand each others cues-I dont like this feeling of walking on egg shells with her wondering if she is "getting enough" her dipaer pee has been 4-6 and poos everyday small or big or other. Her naps are just horrible and she only taking cat ones on me. Do you think she may be needing to start solids or needing a better fill. WE have issues with possible reflux and now alleriges...so that can explain some and her latch and suck is kinda not pitcure perfect by any means. With all this nursing she should be wetting major...no? anyways I go in for a wt today or friday and well see. It is just hard when it hasnt been easy at all and I always seem to fret!!!
any advice encouragment would be good
oh and some days i "feel full" and others like today wimpy...
