my lo is almost 7 mos old and she still nurses every two hours some nights. other nights i get a little stretch: nurses at 9pm,2am,4am,6am,8am. We are co-sleep so it is easier for me to nurse her, but I'm getting a lot of flack from professionals about how often she nurses, and they're blaming it on co-sleeping. I would however like to reduce it some perhaps maybe 1 a night, or if not possibly 2 a night. So far i've tried giver her a soother, patting her bum. But she just becomes more and more awake when she doesn't get the breast, to the point she compleatly wakes up and starts cry. if i move her she immediatly wakes up. Sometimes she eats a lot, other times hardly anything (hard to say i have a habit of falling back asleep). Any suggestions on other things i can attempt?
