This article just popped up in my email, thought you girls would be interested.
Also VP, not sure if the swaddle you use is similar to a love to dream but I googled and it's the equivalent of a 1.0 tog sleeping bag. Here's the clothing guide for it. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1402424975.411125.jpg
DS up at 10 12 1 3 4 5 and out of bed at 6 :-/ he fed 10 1 and 4 which is wayyyyy too much and more than usual but nothing else I did that I usually do worked.
Hey a quick sidebar... How long does your 4ish month old bub take to feed? My bub used to take 30-40 minutes and just these last few days refuses the breast after 20 minutes. My head says he is probably becoming a more efficient user... But the worrywart in me keeps thinking something else might be up and if he doesn't eat properly it will affect his sleeping at night...
VicPark they get quite efficient from now at feeding. My DS is 4.5 months and takes at most 10. mins all up to feed, both sides. He goes usually 3-4 between feeds during the day.
Yes, the longest DS takes is 10 mins on one side and then a few more on the other. But often it's about 7 mins and then another few. I can't get him to stay on longer and the books that say you must feed 25 mins this side then 10 the other make me self conscious. But his weight gain is great and he has heaps of wet and pooey nappies and feeds 3-4 hourly.
Last night was 6.30/7-12.45 and then 5 and 6.30/7!!! Great night I know but the 5am kills me because I have a hard time falling back asleep, it's getting fully bright at 4am here right now, torture!
ETA: He also makes little chatty noises when he comes into a light sleep around 4/4.30 so I kinda feel like I've been up since four such a noisey little man!
