Has anyone started off demand feeding and then moved to a routine??
My twins are now 2months old & DD2 is the perfect baby, hardly cries, feeds well, sleeps nicely after self settling in her cot and gives me the most gorgeous smiles . DS is my sooky, clingy, wants to sleep on me (not even next to me, has to be against my chest) and a bit of a snacker (every 1.5-2.5hrs), so driving me insane with the lack of sleep and inability to even take a pee on my own!!
So as a result, I want to try and move them both to a solid routine so that I can try and get some normalcy back into our house. It's not fair on my older kids ATM, as they get none of my time, even with DS in the HAB i am still so tired and cranky - and it's not their fault. And when DS DOES have the occassional good sleep, he is sooo happy and alert when he wakes, so I think he will benefit.
I am b/f and am certain that he is getting enough milk, he has a hernia causing him some pain ATM so not going to start much until he has had an operation.....but looking for some tips/success stories on how you did it, and also - what routine you have/had for a 2month old. I was thinking of 4hrly feeds (same as in hospy) 8, 12 and 4....DH does shift work and arrives home at those times, so he can be there to help with the older kids at some of the feeds if i do those times.
