Hi, we offer 8 week old ds 5 oz bottles. If he took a lot of it, he'd be wanting his next feed roughly 3 hours later.
However, most of the time he will take 2 or 3 oz's and not want anymore, then he starts his little cough cough cry because he is tired, so I put him down and he has a sleep.
Generally he doesn't sleep for more than an hour and then he wants more milk - again, just a few oz's.
My dd used to feed then sleep for 3 hours - then feed again etc etc - she was very predictable so all this with ds is a little new to me.
Obviously I'd prefer him to take more milk at each sitting and sleep for longer - I'd like to get him into a good routine.
Could it just be that this is the way he is -or has anyone got any suggestions ?
He was a very windy little boy to start off with, which made it difficult for him to settle, but he seems to be geting better now..
Also - he seems very easily stimulated. To start we used to put him down for his naps in his carry cot in a light room, but have found it better to put him in his cot with the blind and curtains drawn...
