night nursing

Our darling 4 month old is nursing every 3-4 hours during the day...but every two at night. Any suggestions for switching this feeding pattern?

Re: night nursing

I think that in the evenings alot of times milk supply is lower so maybe your baby isn't getting quite as much in the evenings as they are during the day so they're making up for it at night? I could be wrong about that but I believe I've read that somewhere and when my little guy was little he would nurse constantly in the evenings and at night. My DD was the same way.

Have you tried cosleeping? That made night nursing so much easier for us. If you don't feel comfortable having baby in bed next to you, you could put a pack and play or bassinet in your room so the baby is right there.
