    Can I just say that I am so thankful for this thread? Despite not contributing it is really making me feel less alone. I feel like a zombie right now, 4 month old dd had such a terrible night last night (as well as the last 5 weeks approx) and I am really going loony with the sleep deprivation. Knowing others are out there experiencing it also is definitely making me feel less alone and isolated.

    Dd was awake every hr last night and was so difficult to settle each time. Then when I finally managed to, and was just about to drift off myself, bam! She would wake again

    It makes me feel like I am a horrible mother to my 5 yr old during the day because i just have no energy.

    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
    DS only does a few minutes each side as well and sometimes just one. I think he's just really efficient and I have a great supply as he has heaps of pooey and wet nappies. He's never taken that long, even as a newborn. Sometimes I can pump a full bottle in less than 10 minutes on one side and a baby is more efficient than a pump so I try to not be self conscious about how quick he is. Those books with time limits do my head in, even as a newborn he didn't spend 20 minutes on one side!

    I would be pi$$ed off too. Did DH say why he didn't follow the new schedule? Perhaps he couldn't remember? With ds1 I used to write the routine and stick it on the family room wall..

    My boy feeds for about 10-15 during the day. Sometimes one breast, sometimes too. Our bed time feed drags out to about 45 minutes.. I think a lot of it is comfort sucking and mum hiding away in the bedroom until dad has finished feeding the toddler

    My MACH nurse said bub can get 30 mls per gulp sometimes so it's quite possible your bub has had a 'full bottle' after 5 mins...

    It won't last forever and until then don't be afraid to use TV to help with your 5 year old xx

    With the waking every hour is bub feeding each time or just needing resettling?

    Does everyone have a rough nap schedule yet? I found Jo Ryan had a great schedule that was quite flexible still and not as rigid as others. I also found that helped with DDs eating and sleep - albeit it was months before she learned to self settle and was still waking twice a night, but it helped the crazy might time waking.
    My bub falls asleep on his own 90% of the time. He might 'rouse' for a couple of minutes then drifts off. Occasionally I will have to go in and do a few minutes of shush/pat (walking out while he is drowsy but not asleep).

    As you know ds2 is on the SOS schedule... (But I can be flex if needed). I find it helpful because it helps me pin point more easily when to put bub down for a nap.

    Welcome @Barnaby

    Ok I don't feel so bad now with DS feeding time. Ds1 was the same but I did have more milk with him, my boobs felt a lot fuller but maybe because I expressed a lot in between feeds which I am not doing this time around. But maybe I will start that, I can build up a stash, get DS to start taking a bottle and also increase supply.

    He is still having lots of wet and poo nappies too and overnight!! Wow they are so full! Even if I change them during the night, the morning one is really heavy.

    I fed DS puréed pumpkin and rice cereal last night and he loved it and slept till round 11:30 or something? Better than 10:30!! Ds1 probably woke him anyway. But then the usual million wake ups after that

    Resettling and feeding. My ds also kindly shared his cold with her so I think stuffy nose and a little cough don't help matters.

    the tv has definitely been my friend these school holidays
