Anybody else's EBF baby not hungry in the morning?

With my first he was always wanted to nurse in the morning
(even if he was up in the middle of the night) when he woke up and with Isabelle she eats in the middle of the night and in the mornings she just doesn't seem hungry. I try and nurse her and she will only for a minute or 2. She is so awake, giggling and just looking at everything. Maybe she is too distracted in the mornings to nurse. She woke up at 4 last night to eat (well few times last night because she has a cold). But it is like this every morning.
Anybody else's ebf baby do this?

I cosleep with dd and she wakes up two or three times at night to nurse, and isn't hungry when she finally is awake awake in the morning until 30 min to an hour after she wakes up. That first nursing after that though seems like it's a BIG breakfast!

My dd is like this too - she just wants to smile and move around when she wakes up. She usually eats once during the night and not very much. I don't think there is anything wrong though - she eats plenty throughout the rest of the day, especially before bed, and usually eats in the AM after an hour or two. HTH!

Yup. We co-sleep so she nurses all night. For breakfast, she normally throws more on the ground than she puts in her mouth.

My dd is like that too. I used to be really full in the mornings, but I adjusted and now I am not ever very full in the am.

Caroline definitely was like that as a baby and still is a bit at 18 months, though she eats more now in the morning than she did then. We also cosleep and she nursed (still does) all night long and quite a bit in the morning before getting up, so I think she just needs awhile to make room in her tummy.

We wake up around 7 and DD doesn't "eat" until 9ish. It's that darn all-night milk buffet!

DD used to eat like crazy in the morning. However, lately she's been reverse cycling and is eating 2 or 3 times at night. As a result, she just doesn't eat much in the morning anymore.

Yep, my EBF baby does this. It's the only time of day he'll go 4 hours without eating. Funny ... maybe it's b/c of co-sleeping?
