I have a nine week old who has a fantastic bed time routine, However he is not yet going through the night. He goes down very easily at 8p.m and sleeps through till 1 - 2 ish when he has a feed. He then wakes again at 4 -5 with grumbling but seems to be easily put back to sleep until 6 when I feed him.
I have tried the dream feed at 10p.m but it seems he still wakes for the 1-2a.m. feed.
Am I being unreasonable to expect him to go through at nine weeks? Should I perservere with the dream feed even though he still wakes at 1a.m.
DD2 continued to wake up at 1-2 for sometime when I introduced the dream feed. I then dropped it thinking it wasn't working (and I was truly shattered and needed some sleep). I started again a couple of weeks later and after a week or so she stopped waking up at 1-2am. I think it takes 1-2 weeks to break a habit - give your DS time to adjust.
