Re: How often does your 5 month old nurse?

My 4.5 month old DS still eat every 3 hours, and lately as been doing that thru the night! We just saw his ped on Saturday and he said that wasn't normal! What?!?! I think I might be switching peds...

A few years ago our pedi, which we loved, said that since I still night fed my 4 month old "he would NEVER sleep thru the night" I left feeling like a terrible mom.... LOL. Jerk. My DS STTN (8 HOURS) the very first night he slept in his crib (out of our bed).. at 5 months. And DS#2 STTN, in our bed, at 6 months. Its very common. While I do think its okay to start night weaning, if the mother wants, at 5-6 months, its certainly not uncommon for LO's to want to nurse.
