my 7 week old ds just went from sleeping thru the night 7pm-6am to waking every 2hrs (which he has never ever done to us before at night), very unsettled tho not crying just grizzling, feeding pathetically (falling asleep on boob and taking an hour) and it was taking us over 2hrs to get him bak to sleep - but only for him to sleep for 2hrs. DH topped him up with EBM after i fed him which he'd drink, burp, fart ect but still be unsettled. It still took 2hrs to get him to sleep.
We have been thru a growth spurt at 6weeks and it almost killed me. Do they have ANOTHER one a week later?!?!?!
Right now i feel like i dont have enough milk as yesterday he was feeding less than 2hrly all day and then again thru the night. So i am pumping after feeds again today to try nd keep up with his demand - which is exhausting me even more. if i dont pump, i wont keep the supply he needs. ive been thru that before.
im sick of everything being about my milk supply, im so over it and sometimes think formula would just be easier. We were doing so well with breastfeeding untill yesterday/lastnight/today.
This morning he's no different - waking after half hr for another feed (which was only an hr ago. He will fall asleep while feeding but wont actually go to sleep when i put him to bed or try and rock him to sleep. i have a 2yr old to deal with so this constant feeding and no sleeping is realy not working for me.
i dont know what's going on with my usually "easy" newborn!
It also doesnt help that he wont take a bottle from me (he screams) so i dont get a break when dh isnt home.
i also doubt anyone will reply to this beacause i should just "go with th flow, this is typical newborn behaviour, if hes gaining weight and has wet nappies hes fine, probably silent reflux (if i get that one more time i swear i will scream, hes not a reflux/colicy baby!!!!! my dd was and i know what it is like!!!. Anothr grth spurt (lucky me), wonder week- pffffttt what a load of b.s "wonder" weeks are.
