I really need help with this one, Please!
My 6 month old usually nurses before bed and falls asleep nursing or on her own in her crib. After dinner, bath and story I usually nurse her and she goes to bed easily. So the past two nights she won't nurse at all at bedtime. She nurses during the day and she seems tired, yawning and rubbing eyes. Is there something wrong with my milk at night? She will take a bottle of my milk, but won't nurse.
I take her out of her crib and she is fussy but kicking her legs. She calms down and smiles at me, but rubs her eyes so I put her back in her crib. She cries loudly at this.
Last night she didn't go to sleep until 10:30 and this was after about 3 hours of my husband and I holding her and she cried basically the whole time. The usual bed time is before 7pm. I thought also, since she usually sleep until 5:30am, she would sleep for a few extra hours, but she still woke up at her normal times.
She hasn't taken long naps during the day, 1hr at aroun10am and 1 hr at about 2:30pm.
Any suggestions? Is there something wrong with my boobs? I am about to give up breastfeeding all together!
