Hi so as of today ds (3weeks) is officially 100% formula fed after being comp fed for past few weeks, but he is feeding every 2 hours! sometimes he wakes up an hour and half after last wake up and is sucking on my neck/his fingers like crazy, i have been trying to hold him out at least to get to two hours but i thought the formula was gonna leave him fuller, i didnt mind so much when he was having EBM because i know it digests differently.
Could it be a growth spurt? should i hold him out even longer to try and get a bigger break? sometimes he doesnt have a full bottle every feed, i have been making 100ml and he has about 60-70, if i make 50 he seems to just guts it and be hungry really soon.
Im scared he will be like dd and will be unsettled but i will be thinking hes hungry and just stick a bottle in his mouth and develop bad habits, this morning about 45 mins before he was due for a feed(well 2 hours after last one started) he was fussing but i really didnt think he could be hungry so i just wrapped him and rocked with him and he eventually fell asleep for about an hour, then woke up and had a full bottle.
Im just scared im doing the wrong things and making a rod for my back like with DD, her first year was hell with no routine or structure or me knowing what to do i dont want that again
