Ive posted this in the feeding section and not had much joy- not sure if its a sleep or feeding issue
My DS is 12 weeks old tomorrow and has pretty much put himself in his own 3 hour routine from the day he was born. He is formula fed and takes circa 90-120ml a feed. He is 15lb
He goes to bed 7-7.30pm and for the past 3 weeks I've given him a dream feed- he will take only about 60-90ml before falling fast asleep but it would push him until 3am ish! Before waking up in the morning between 6am and 7am.
I'm asking as not sure if I am being an impatient 1st time mummy and people keep saying oh he should be going through now- but I am not sure if the dream feed is working? We go to bed when he goes to bed to cope with the broken sleep and not sure if I should just put him down and leave to wake? I tried last night and he was up at 11.30pm and 3am. So clearly he is miles off sleeping through I think!
What did other people do? The little grubs loves his food but will not take anymore if he doesn't want it so I can't really give him any more the books say stop tanking up at 8 weeks- which didn't really work for us anyway as he just ended up snacking!
Am I being impatient or am I doing something wrong can some lovely MNers can give any advice or reassurance?
