My second daughter is 4 months old and still, since she was born, is nursing every 2 hours as much as every hour DAY and NIGHT..I'm exhausted and never getting a break for my 3 year old. I tried her with a few bites of solids the past few days just to see if she would slow down and because she has shown every sign of being ready..grabbing my food, sucking and swallowing what I give her, almost sitting by herself, cutting two teeth..but so far I haven't noticed much difference in her sleeping or eating habits. She doesn't sleep for longer than an hour at a time either, day or night, wakes up, nurses again and goes back to sleep. She is actually eating too, not just comfort sucking.
Any ideas? Should I continue on with the solids? What would be best to start with? How to fill her up so she goes longer between feedings and sleeps longer?
