ive been told (mchn) to try and spread ds's feeds out to 3-4hrly during the day but im having trouble doing so. (he can and does go 8-9hrs o/night) i dont want to interfere with this!!
Ive been feeding him 2hrly/demand since he was born, exclusively breastfed. He is 5.8kg, 5.5weeks old. I also think we are about to, if not already, hitting a growth spurt.
He's not napping for long during day (40mins-1hr most of that time he is self settling) he has about 4 of these short ones a day and "sometimes" if im lucky, a longer one for 3hrs in the late arvo. His feeds are done in 20mins max. He is still a little young to be awake for 2hrs?! he clearly gets tired after 15mins on the floor having a kick after i have fed him. so how do i lengthen out the feeds?
I thought by 6 weeks things regulate? i think my ds is just a bit of a piggy?
Im ok with the frequent feeding and just going with him, but hey, 3hrs does sound nice
