    Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3
    DP getting up in the night is progress! Dummies can be great for bubs with reflux as the saliva produced helps neutralise some of the stomach acid.

    @salsamamma - sorry I should have clarified, DH was referring to DS1 who is 3 when he was talking about manipulation

    Ah ok. Not sure about manipulation, but I can see how he might be wanting a bit more attention than usual with a new little brother one the scene. My DS1 is 3 too and while he's great most of the time, he's definitely demanding a lot more attention. Most of the time he wants it only from me too.

    Hugs hun, its a rough trot for you at the moment with sleep and everything else.

    How long does everyone's babies BF for?

    DS only ever has less than 5 mins on each side and I don't fee him each side every time...

    Maybe I just don't have enough milk? He's never crying for food during the day at all... I'm so confused

    I wish I had at least SOME answers

    I left kids with DH and left at 8am, I asked DH to feed ds2 his solids round 8:30/9 and put him to bed round 9/9:30. I got home at 10 and he was only just feeding him his solids and then i put him to bed at 10:30. I am so annoyed as he knows I was trying a new routine and now it's stuffed! He only slept 36 mins as he couldn't go into the next sleep cycle.

    ****ed off

    That would p**s me off. That's like when I was in hospital with DS all DP had to do was look after DD she's almost 3 1/2 so it's not that hard. Anyway he came to see us in hospital at 10am left at 11.30am came back at 5pm and Dd was complaining she's hungry I said didn't u feed her some dinner or a snack before coming he goes I didn't even feed her lunch yet because I was up here visiting you!!! He had money Jesus go through a drive through on the way home at 11.30am if you had to!! How hard is it.

    Men just don't get it half the time!!

    Anyway I don't BF but DS takes about 10-15 minutes on the bottle to drink 160mls which he has been taking each and every bottle YAY!!


    Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3

    @SAgirl I don't bf, but DS takes about 30 mins per bottle. I assume bf is different though. When I was struggling to bf I saw a lactation consultant who advised around 40 mins for each feed. That was in the very early days though, so I'm sure feeds would be a lot quicker now that your DS is older. Maybe post in the bf section? There are lots of very bf knowledgeable people who might be able to help.
    @LiterallyNoOne Bub's doing fantastically with his feeds isn't he? Fingers crossed he's settled down with feeds.

    @SAgirl you just can't catch a break can you!

    I'm thinking of moving DS to a larger teat because he seems to get tired towards the middle of a feed and has been taking more like 20 mins to feed but I'm too scared ill stuff everything up


    Me + DP 01.03.2010 = DD 22.02.2011 + DS 20.01.2014 = <3

    Since he's only just got his feeding mojo maybe leave it a week or so?
