Feeding for hours at night

(3 Posts)

My dd1 is 15 weeks old today and she used to be a really good sleeper - slept from 8pm-7am waking for one feed during the night. For the past few nights she has been feeding for hours - on and off for about 3 hours (every 15-30mins) before eventually giving in and sleeping at about 11pm. She then wakes for a feed at 2am and is difficult to settle whereas she used to just go straight back down. She is exclusively breastfed and won't take a bottle of any description we have tried hundreds of teats with no luck.

Has anyone experienced anything like this/can give me any tips as it is driving me insane as the evenings are the only break I get as OH is at work 6am-8pm every day including every other weekend and no family/friends in the area.

emmylou157, really feel for you as it must be hard, especially has she has slept previously.

However, this is perfectly normal and will pass, I promise.

Have a look at 4 month sleep regression and growth spurts. To be honest she could just be having a growth spurt at this age.

Please also take a look at is my baby ready for solid food and remember it won't be many weeks before you are weaning her anyway.

Aw Emmylou,

I feel for you. DS has never slept through and tbh I'm glad. I think it is harder for those who have a seep-through baby and then a sleep regression!

Ineedsomesleep has given great advice above but I just wanted to give youmy sympathies!

This too will pass...
