Hi looking for some advice or maybe just to know that I'm not the only in up at all hours of the night!
My 4 and a half month old bf son on a GOOD night feeds every 3 hours ( bed at 6/7 pm, feeds 10ish, 1ish, 4ish then start the day at 6-7am) I hear of babies having 1 longer stint at night, but not here!! He feeds both sides and drinks like crazy.
He generally just feeds and straight back into cot and self settles. But for the last month for two nights a week each week he will stay awake after either the 1ish or 4ish feed and just be wide awake! I leave him in cot but he will mumble and grumble for 10 mins b4 crying, I'll go in and he will be smiling and kicking around, this continues for up to 2 1/2 hours!
What is going on?? This will happen for two nights then back to "normal" for the rest of the week ( normal isn't really that flash anyway!). Where is this 5 hour stint I read about? I can't even do a dreamfeed cos he always wakes up anyway!
Help, first time mummy going slowly crazy!!
