I have exclusively breastfeed my son since he was born....I wish to continue breastfeeding him until he is at least a year. During the day he will eat between 3 and 4 times, but at night it seems like he constantly is eating! He still sleeps in my bed and some nights he will sleep through the night and only wake up once or twice, but most nights he will wake me every hour or two. How long is this going to last? I have introduced foods to him and he is extremely interested in them, however, he doesn't seem to eat much. He makes a pukey sound while he is chewing the foods. He will play with all the food I set in front of him and attempt to pick it up and put it in his mouth but he wants to nurse after dinner. I am comfortable exclusively nursing him and would prefer it. But what if my milk isn't enough for him? My main concern is his health, but I want to sleep at night again! What recommendations do you other nursing mothers have for me?
