My LO is 4 months and wakes up twice during the night to feed. he doesn't 'wind' after his night feeds as he just falls asleep.I have tried to 'wind' him nonetheless and am only occassionaly successful.
now a problem because after his second feed, he takes a while to settle and he behaves like he's really uncomfortable. he'll sleep upright on my shoulder but as soon as i put him down - he starts to fudget and get distressed.
Out of curiosity, how do you do your night time feeds? I always lie down with LO lay on her side next to me feeding and I rarely need to wind her after. She falls asleep and I just move her over onto her back. She is a little younger than your LO though at 9 weeks so maybe I have this to come.
I have heard that feeding with LO upright can prevent them becoming as windy so that might help. something to try I guess until someone more knowledgeable comes along.
I always worried about this. I feed lying down at night and if he didn't settle I'd lift him and wind him, sometimes he'd burp, sometimes not but then he'd be awake again and needing milk! Arrgggh! I don't think there is a hard and fast rule with some babies, you just have to try different things at different times.
OP, sorry but sounds like he just wants to sleep on you! Sometimes you have to wait til they are in a really deep sleep (floppy arms) before you can get them down - what a knacker it is!
Don't worry in a few months they can deal with their own burps, if you can survive that long...
try changing shoulders and tilting him slightly to one side to try and move the wind a bit or do the sitting forward winding position. I find the hardest bit is forcing myself to sit up in the first place, once I am there I can deal with LO ok
