DS was feeding twice regularly and had dropped to once for a few consecutive nights, but then he got a tooth through and since then it's been 3, normally 4, feeds between 11.30 and 6 (not including the 6/6.30 feed). I'm shattered, they're big feeds and I'm finding it really draining. They're mainly clumped together from 3.30 onwards and I don't think he needs them from a hunger perspective.
Also he's been crying a lot around that time, he never normally cries at night, he just makes a little noise, feeds and goes back to sleep. Now he's really crying before, during and after the feeds. So I think he might be teething and is comfort feeding.
He's also refusing solids during the day (unless it's fruit) and so I think he's feeding the wrong way round, iyswim.
Is there any way to gently wean him back down to 11.30, 3.30 and 6.30, I could cope with that.
Also, should I be giving him fruit/fruit puree if he's refusing to eat everything else? I don't know whether he'll keep refusing if he knows he'll get the sweet stuff anyway, but I'm not sure if he's too young to have worked that out or not.
