I swear she is addicted! We have made it to 6months!! I pump once a day and while at work so she only gets breastmilk when she has a bottle (only while I'm at work) I work nights, so she is with DH 3 nights a week, and then 1 day a week she is with my mom so I can sleep before going back into work (I only do MAX 2 nights in a row).
My baby is so Addicted to the boob! Here is what I'm finding....My mom can feed her a bottle of BM right before bringing her home on the day she has her...as soon as Izzie sees me, she is ready to nurse, and not just for a snack, like for an entire meal. I always go to where ever she is right after getting out of work so I can nurse her, well today for instance, dh had just dropped her off, which means she had just eaten about 20 minutes before (he gives her a good 4-5oz in the morning before dropping her off) she threw a fit until I let her nurse! At night, we partially cosleep, but it is getting the point that I'm not getting any sleep because she wants to nurse the entire time she is laying beside me. If she falls asleep, and then I fall asleep, and she gets unlatched, she wakes up and cries until I nurse her...I don't even think she is hungry, and I know she is doing it for comfort...but I think she is addicted!!! It doesn't really bother me, but she has problems with reflux anyways...and then all this overeating it seems she is spitting up even more!
Is this normal?????

My little guy has reversed cycled himself as well...there are just SOOO many interesting things to do during the day to eat. We co-sleep full time but I mostly sleep throught him eating so I'm not bothered most of the time. Anyway just letting you know you're not alone.
