I go through it with mine too (19 mo). It's a lot better now but there were times it was very frustrating. I've just always said "Gentle". If she gets rough I pull her hand away and say gentle again....

Nowhere in particular pops out to me, although I did use to nurse her laying down on the chiropractor's table while she got adjusted. It was the only way to keep her still.

I would find a local IBCLC, not an LC, and get a second opinion. Also, chiropractic care (for baby) can do wonders with nursing problems.

Sounds pretty normal to me...

Could you cut out one of his daytime naps? 3 naps a day may be too much for him at this point. Maybe he's not tired enough at night.

Is he in his own room?

I tried a more expensive manual Avent pump thinking if my cheapie was that good, a more expensive one would be even better. It was useless. I think I got an ounce one time. After like ten minutes.

DD is 15 mo old...I chose 7:30 but it's really more like 6:30-8:30, depending on her mood and how sleepy she seems and what her naps that day were like. Generally it's just about 7:30, though.

I agree with what some of the others have said- what about telling her she needs to be in her room, in bed, by 8:30, but she can choose to do whatever until 9:00 and at that point it's lights out?...
