My 15 week old baby is still cluster feeding for 4-5 hours most evenings. I need help to break the cycle, I have heard all the 'it's normal' comments but I have bf two other dc who were well past (in fact one dc never cluster fed at all) it by this stage. I have already introduced a bottle at 11pm for my sanity as she would be permanently attached if I let her. I get nothing done during the day as she only sleeps when I do the school run or go out in the car.
How do I get her to take a full feed after her bath and have a good decent stretch of sleep? I need my nights back to *catch up on chores *spend some time with my other two dc before bed *reconnect with my dh *and have a little me time once in a while.
Update from me - the cluster feeding has eased off - the only thing I can think of is I started to feed in her room at night rather than on the sofa in front of the telly which was possibly distracting her from going into a deep sleep.
But still hard to get her to take a big enough feed to sustain her. So we are back to more regular feeding in the middle of the night arrgghh!!! Keep reminding myself it won't last long!
