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!

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.
