This is my second bub. DD1 slept well at night and would wake every 4 hrs for a feed around this age. But DS is waking every 2 hrs at night for a feed. It's exhausting. Most mornings at around 4am he'll then wake every hr or so for top ups. But during the day, he'll sleep forever. I know that he probably still has his days/nights muddled but I'm tired! Especially now that my toddler has stopped her day sleeps. Although today I forced her to have quiet time in her room with door shut and lights out and she's gone to sleep! I'm quite surprised!
But just want to know if your newborn feeds this frequently throughout the night and how are you dealing with it. I've reluctantly also introduced the dummy to DS which I'm hoping will help string out the feeds however I hate the idea of him associating the dummy with sleep.
I'd love some responses on those who have also had a bub who fed a lot throughout the night and how long did it go on for?
