I'm trying to make a decision on this and would like advice.
I would like to cut out one of Jordan's night feedings. She nurses at bedtime and then wakes to nurse anywhere between 11:30-1:00 and then again around 4:00-5:30. We cut out one of her night feedings rather easily before and I'm hoping it will be the same this time around. I really think her body is so used to waking at certain times and it's just a matter of resetting her clock so to speak.
We don't bed share so I nurse her in a rocking chair next to her crib. I'll be hones that sometimes it is reaaally hard to drag myself out of bed, especially if I go to bed before the first nursing session and I'm getting up for the second time that night. I don't know HOW I used to get up three times a night for so long.
Last time we did this I sent DH in to rock her. She didn't really like it but it was better than me going in there. If I try to rock her then she gets very angry if I'm not nursing her. She will not even let me hold her as she pushes and squirms all over. It's just hard though b/c my husband works and I would like to try and let him sleep.
