I just went to my 6 month check up and my pediatrician told me I needed to eliminate her night feedings because at her age she does not need them. She only wakes up and nurses for about 20 minuets and goes right back to sleep, and she only does it twice a night, sometimes only once. I am really concerned because we just got over a month long nursing strike, and she only really nurses at night. I can only feed her on one side, so I would have to wake up and pump in the middle of the night anyways, which I really would prefer not to do anymore. She is a great sleeper, and I understand that she needs to learn to "get herself to sleep". I have tried the methods of patting and comfort and not nursing and she only wakes up fully and gets very angry. She does not cry it out, we have tried before and she can go for a while. I strongly feel that she will eventually sleep on her own, and I need to follow my motherly instinct. But I do not want to create a problem if this is something I must go through, please help!
