We were down to one feed a day in the morning but DD has other ideas. When she wants feeding, she hands me a cushion.

If I don't feed her, she shrieks and follows me around with the cushion. And ideas? Apart from living without cushions?

It's much worse when she has a cold which is constantly right now. I had her checked for ear infections etc last week.

When she is poorly, she may well want the comfort of extra breastfeeds. It helps her stay hydrated too. If you want to get back to the one feed a day when she is feeling a bit better, then you might have to distract her, and yes, hide the cushions smile

She also feeds whenever she has a tantrum as a way of calming down. Ugh.
