    Default Cluster feeds

    How is it that during the day DS will bf then sleep for 3-4 hours but from about midnight thru to 4am wants to feed every hour? He's just over a week old.

    He may still have his days and nights confused, with DD it took until she was roughly 6 weeks for her to get it right.
    Try and sleep while he sleeps during the big sleeps so at least you get some rest.

    Just had another thought, is he getting cold at 4, DD still sometimes wakes around then and won't settle properly until I put another blanket on her or put her in a thicker sleeping bag, it's hard at this time of year as when going to bed its still warm but early mornings are quite chilly

    Could be getting a bit cold tho I did use another blanket last night with no change. Have basically spent the last 5-6 hours feeding and changing - I'm stuffed! He's sleeping now so I'll eat and sleep too! Hope he soon learns the day/night thingie

    You may get told this a bit but it really will pass, just make sure to look after yourself too.

    Congrats on your baby! You can try letting bub see sunlight during the day, and offering feeds more often during the day to help him adjust.

    Well its1:20am and I've been feeding on and off since 10pm. I did get an hour's sleep before this thank goodness! There's still no real pattern to DS feeding - last night he cluster fed from 1am to 3:30am and I actually got some reasonable sleep. Tonight not so good but it is very hot here.good newish that he's nearly regained his birth weight - yeah for breast milk
