    Ok great thanks everyone

    I havent tried the fitball, I'll give that a go.

    And I'll try cluster feeding

    Any tips for how I get into a routine for the evenings cause im demand feeding? Sometimes he'll feed at 5 & then again at 7, sometimes he'll feed at 6 & then sleep till 10 etc etc it changes all the time. So I have a lot of trouble fitting in a bath etc cause the feeds change all the time

    Maybe give the bath at 4-4:30? Before things get unpredictable. I would just try to do it around the same time - so if a feed has to happen around bath time then just bath directly after.

    Witching hr! I found what help with my ds was
    -stop all stimuli around 2/3. No telly or loud radio or visitors etc
    -a trip outside for some fresh air
    -inside to bath/shower
    -bedtime routine. Msybe baby massage. Into pjs. Read a book.
    -cluster feed from around 4.30/5 or from after bath along with bedtime routine.
    -quite quite quite
    -try to settle for bed at least thirty to forty min earlier the usual.

    Re routine with demand feeding. I would mask that whole chunk of time a bedtime routine. Bath early on like I mentioned and then into a quite room/bedroom just to chill. Lots of cuddles and maybe sims lullabies or books. Baby will learn it's all gearing up to end of the day and sleeping he can feed on and off during this time but environment stays the same. Hth.

    The unpredictable nature of many BF babies means that it can be feed, sleep, feed, feed, play, feed, sleep, play, play, play, sleep, etc. Let's face it, all little babies do is feed, play or sleep!

    DD was just feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed,feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, sleep, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed,feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed,feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed, feed... you get the idea.

    Ok well how do I know? He doesnt have any cues that I can see. I have no idea if he's hungry or what & can only tell he's tired when he starts yawning (which ive been told is a late cue).

    Its just a massive endeavour getting set up for a feed - pillow under my elbow, terry flat under him across my lap, another one over my other shoulder, a cloth or bib tucked around his bottom arm & shoulder & shield on (I have to do all this otherwise both of us need an outfit change after the feed cause milk pours out of his mouth while feeding & goes everywhere) - so I do all that & then it turns out that he's not even hungry & just keeps crying

    Some hungry cues can be sucking on a fist, burrowing his head into your desk, "bobbing" his head around like he's searching for something.

    I'm worried we could be confusing you. Every baby is different, so while one routine may work for one person, another it won't, then another it would be slightly different.

    I know I've said it a bunch of times, but I would chat to your health nurse during a home visit, then can then see all of this in play and offer specific advice to you and your baby. And a LC in regards to what sounds like could be over supply or a fast letdown. I thnk you said you're seeing a GP soon too? I'd ask for a second/third opinion on reflux too.

    Im seeing my lc soon so will ask about oversupply etc then

    Ive spoken to the mchn last time she came out re sleeping & settling - her response was 'oh just wrap him up & put him to bed'. Helpful, not. I wonder if she's actually ever had a baby.

    He seems to suck his fists all the time, so I have trouble distinguishing thatvas a cue. I dont know if he does the other things, ill have to watch him

    Do you think it could be wind? My DS was the same I found Infants Friend works so so well. And for the times when he is super unsettled I'll give him the brauers teething if I think it's his teeth or the brauers colic. I would also talk to a doctor if you haven't already could be something they may be able to pick up.
