Hey ladies. I asked this on my local board, but thought you all might have good ideas.
Little G is 6 1/2 months now and is EBF. Won't even take a bottle (sigh).
He's super active now and won't sit still long enough to nurse, except for his early morning feeding. He's never done the 20+ minute sessions, but seemed to get enough going for 5-10 minutes.
Now, he is technically nursing for 5 minutes or so, but it's more like suck-suck-suck--pull away and look around. It doesn't seem effective. After 5 minutes, he's trying to wiggle to the floor.
He is on solids 2x daily so I wouldn't worry, but the quick nursing-snack sessions don't keep him full for very long.
Any advice on keeping him focused on eating longer?
I only BF one baby this long, but by this point I was pumping for the most part, and only nursing at night. I'm clueless.
