    Default Re: Feed Play Sleep Questions

    Jasper was feed play sleep pretty much from birth. Would self settle without protest. Was good day sleeper until 18 months. Frequent night waker/feeder until 3 years. I think he got a strong association between waking and feeding. So at the end of each sleep cycle needed to feed to go back to sleep.

    Katelyn is play feed sleep pretty much from birth. She slept through around 6 weeks.... Stopped sleeping through around 3-4 months..... Is a crap Napper. Sleeps great if she's in our bed, not so much in her cot, she's been teething near constantly since 3-4 months, she's 10 months and I just noticed an 11th tooth cutting :-/ but she's not a big night feeder, she just wants to be held at night.

    Every baby is different. Some will drop their night feeds early and others will be hungry in the night for a while. Let your baby tell you what they want and just go with it :-)
    Thanks. He gets two night feeds we are ok just wondering how feed play sleep can help reduce if we want to try.

    We tried the dream feed again last night 1015pm. He still wakes 130 and 4am for feeds so so far no luck to stretch his hours. Probably give it another go tonight.

    ITs certainly true that every baby is unique and different but nice to hear about other babies to learn more about their various patterns, so that I won't feel so lost. I already have a boy who's 7 and yet I am feeling really lost most times cos bub is ever changing every few days...

He feeds at 5-6pm for bed then sleeps til 12-1 & up for another feed then wakes at 4am is is unsettled for 1.5 hours. I know he isn't hungry cause I've tried giving him a bottle & he only ever takes 20-30mls so I give him a dummy at this stage at then he will usually feed around 5.30-6am.

    During the day it's totally different, he feeds every 3 hours without fail, I can't get him to go longer at all. As he only catnaps we have never been able to do any type of sleep, feed, play routine.

    It is very hard, & having an unpredictable baby with their feed & sleep times makes it so much harder.
    EO, my bub is opposite to yours for feeding. He snacks the whole day! He's so distracted at my boobs, looking at my t shirt prints instead. And when he has a bottle, he would talk with the teat in his mouth! Very very cute but no good. I have to feed him half of his bottle (130ml) one hour later and still he doesn't finish. My dog is a happy pooch cos he gets to drink all his leftover milk. Can't imagine if I fully express BM...he would be wasting a lot of it So I have no idea when he's hungry in the day...sometimes he can stretch longer than 3 hours on very little milk...I am so... he will definitely wake at night to drink though he doesn't finish his milk (always leaving 30-40ml), but at least he doesn't just take half of the 130ml, he takes a 100ml. I think he could be more interested in his surrounding in the day and wakes at night to compensate his milk input. I am trying to understand this little buddy who suddenly has changed in some ways. But seeing him baby talk is certainly priceless!

    Default Feed Play Sleep Questions

    Hey It's really common for bubs to get distracted during feeds at this age. I've started going to a quiet room or letting bub play with a chunky necklace to feed. Some days I'll feed dd2 3-4 times during the day and others like today 12 times!!!!

    Just go with feeding bubs as they need it ESP in this hot weather. Bm is a good source of electrolytes.

    Default Feed Play Sleep Questions

    At 14 weeks, I think waking at midnight and 4 is pretty good!

    Default Feed Play Sleep Questions

    We feed, play, sleep most of the time but sometimes dd wants to play, feed, sleep. I demand feed so I do what works for the both of us. I found if I tried to make her follow the feed, play, sleep routine and she wasn't wanting that then all hell would break out. Go with what works for the two of you. My DD is now 16weeks and occasionally wakes for a nice feed otherwise he sleeps from 8-830pm till 6am quick feed then back down till 8-9am.

    At 14 weeks, a baby should wake once to twice a night for a feed

    When you say your DD sleeps from 8-830 till 6am, do you ever wake up to attend to her at all, apart from the occasional nice feed? I mean like nappy change? or arm escaping (if you swaddle) etc?
