Ok so last night DD nursed like a fiend when we got home from work/ daycare which is all very normal, she finished her last nursing around 6 pm (maybe 5:30) we did our normal bedtime routine (just alittle late) but she didn't want to nurse like she normally does. I did offer, often.
She fell asleep around 8 or 8:30, no nursing, and then she didn't stir to nurse until sometime around 12 or 12:30 - I pulled her into bed, from the co-sleeper, and nursed her sidelying. but that is the longest she has ever gone without nursing at night and then she may have nursed one more time but she didn't nurse again after that until 6:30 am.
Is that OK, Normal? SHould I have woken her up to nurse? Ugg I feel like a bad mother, I am not 100% certain of when and for how long she nursed last night (we usually nurse in a half asleep state)..
She is such a great nurser, I never have to give it thought anymore, she gets 2 bottle a day at daycare (8 oz max. total) I nurse her at lunch time. She is really great at letting me know she wants to nurse, and she usually nurses when ever I offer.
