My 9 month old DD wakes like every 2-3hours for a feed. I try not to feed her but she just kicks and yells until i do. Its been like this for over a month now. She feeds way more often at night then during the day. What can I do? I am so tired. Its worse than when she was a newborn.

I second this. My daughter still eats all night, but I feel so much less sleep deprived now that I don't have to wake up to feed her. When she wakes up I just roll over and pull my shirt up for her (it's too cold here to sleep topless!). Lifesaver.

I usually sleep in REALLY big men's tank tops and slip a boob out the arm hole. The key for me is to get so I just have to stretch or scootch a tiny bit, babe finds nipple, everyone's back off to sleep.


First few times you might need to use your hand to point the boob/nipple her direction, but I bet she'll catch on fast

That has been a real lifesaver here, too. I don't sleep without a shirt on (it's too cold, and I leak like crazy still) but I sleep in a thin strapped tank with a built in bra and when ds2 wakes up to eat I lower the strap and take out my boob, help him get it in his mouth and we both go back to sleep. I feel so much more rested because I'm not having to wake up compleatly, and Des is still able to eat... we're both happy!
