Here's a somewhat related question... Do you ever feel like you don't have much milk at the end of the day, or even that your dd or ds would like more than you have? The past couple of days I have very quickly "emptied" at bedtime nursing.
I have actually been trying to get my 9.5 month DD to nurse more; she's just SO BUSY all the time, I have to remind her to nurse (although she only actually nurses about half the time I offer her my boob - she's not a real nursing addict - but she does nurse about 6-7 times a day). I neither want to be a food or boob pusher, nor do I want my DD to be getting too little to eat and nurse. My DD does have 3 meals a day, but dinner is the only one that's even very substantial - the other meals are more just snacks she has when I eat meals.
I know I probably just ought to quit thinking about it and assume that my DD would let me know if she wasn't getting enough, but babies are just so little... of course you worry whether you're doing everything right!
