Do your babies really *sleep* through nursing? Eden wakes UP to let me know she needs to nurse, and then she'll fall asleep halfway through, but she doesn't sleep from the beginning.
That's a good idea. I'll try it tonight. We pick him up in his blanket like a hammock sometimes when we don't want to disturb the peace.
also, he does wake up a bit but never even enough to open his eyes. He starts shifting around and making little grunting noises so I know he's ready.
Last night I fed him on one side before I went to bed, moved him to the other side and fed him like that twice during the night, then switched him back to the original side for his morning meal. I changed his diaper at some point but it all blurs together. Anyway, my boobs aren't totally lopsided today, so that is nice. It at least cuts down on the number of times I have to move us around.
