She had quite happily settled into a routine of 20 mins/half hour breakfast, lunch, tea & dinner & then sleeping through the night from about 8 weeks or so. Now it seems to quite often be around 45 mins 6 or 7 times day and night. Bit worried that the milk supply is dwindling although shouldn't it just increase to meet her demand? Or is she having a month long growth spurt! Getting a bit fed up with this.
I fed her at 7am for forty mins and she was shouting again at half nine. I've now been sitting here nearly an hour. My dh got my 2.8yo dd up but then went off to work and she's been downstairs watching tv since about half eight. This is not a good routine.
I haven't had my bloody breakfast yet and this baby has fed twice!
dawnybabe im going through exactly the same thing right now with my 15 wk old ds.
we were in a great 3 hourly routine and he was sleeping through the night until about two weeks ago. he started waking 3/4 times during the night and not settling well after feeds. then on friday he started looking a feed every hour and a half/two hours.
i started crying yesterday as i was trying to do my make up. i'd been attempting it for about an hour and a half and hadnt got past foundation. in the end i gave up. so i know how you feel, it is really hard but the lovely ladies on MN have reassured me that this will pass and it is indeed a normal growth spurt.
Back to four feeds a day and sleeping through the night again. Think it must have been a bit of a growth spurt or just a hungry day or something. Sorry it took me so long to answer, been a bit busy with the childcare. Dh is working 12 hr night shifts for 6 weeks so being a single parent at the mo. Chin up hun, we'll keep going!
