I was just wondering what I should do with my 10 week old (born early so 7 weeks when adjusted).
He usually had a 3 hourly feeding and occasionally would have a 4 hour stretch in the night but from Friday until last night he has been waking up every 1-1.5 hours and not necessary because of hunger and I don't know why the sudden change! My husband and I thought it would get better but we both don't know what's happening.. (First baby)
I had a look back at his diary and on the Friday my mum and I went out for a few hours to go shopping and he was apparently crying the whole time we were out (husband dropped us off and as soon as we closed the door he started crying an wouldn't stop on the drive back home and at home and my husband even tried to feed him and usually he takes the bottle well but wasn't interested and wouldn't stop crying).
Im im thinking would that incident affect him that night to wake so often? But then to occur on Sat and last night? I don't know what to do...any suggestions would be appreciated.
also I have noticed that his feeds have cut down in time, before it would be like 40mins and now it's like 10,15 mins? Apparently this is normal? But I'm not sure if he is sucking any stronger... He can take 100ml in 10 mins which is what he should be drinking every 3 hours approx and usually after the feed he doesn't seem interested which is fine but I'm thinking can this also be the reason he wakes up so often at night? Coz he is hungry??! So confused...
