Would love some advice about my DS pooping at night and also when will he sleep through 7-7?
About two weeks ago DS would get his dream feed at 9PM (just before I go to bed as by then im too tired to stay awake till midnight). He would then wake up around 2am ish because he needs to fart (sorry there's no other way to say this) and I would pop his dummy in his mouth, then he would go back to sleep till around 3.30 - 4.30 am when he would feed back to bed and wake up at 7am. This i could easily handle as it was only once truly getting up to feed him (he's in a bassinet next to me so i reach over and pop the dummy in)
He is now 16 weeks and is beginning to learn to roll over. Well, since the last three nights he won't settle with his dummy at 2am and he wants to be fed twice a night again, he is now also pooping at that time so i need to change his nappy at night, but then he wakes up again to poop at 5.30, he also did at 7.30, at 9am and at 11. Why is he pooping at night now when two weeks ago he would just do this in the morning after 8am?
Why does he all of the sudden want more feeds during the night too?
When will he be able to sleep through the night. I read on this forum some mums baby sleeps 7-7 (you guys are so lucky). And he also still wants to feed roughly every 2.5-3 hours. I was told he should be feeding every 4 hours but I just cant do this.
does anyone have any advice?
Im also not really wanting to let him cry it out - it breaks my heart to do that to him, i just cant . He usually goes down wide awake during the night though- he looks up and smiles at me during the night when i tuck him in, i kiss him goodnight and then he takes his dummy and just drifts off - he is good like that tho). But what to do about the pooping/farting at night that wakes him up and the being hungry all the time?
