    Default Did sleep intervals ever increase?

    Ok so DS1 is still consistently waking every three hours overnight and breastfeeding.

    I'm not interested in starting a debate over sleep methods or whether he needs to feeds etc.

    What I would like to know is whether anyone who had a similar pattern - 3 hourly waking found that the intervals increased - to four hourly or five on their own?

    If so, when did It happen and did it coincide with anything? Longer day naps? Increased solids? Crawling/walking and expending more energy etc?

    Thanks

    My second child was 3hrly from birth till 6/7mths. Then fed 2x a night (bed 6.30pm feed 11pm& 4am then bedshared till 5.30/6am). She was sleeping 1x1hr and 1x3-3.5hrs during the day then.

    Some kids automatically drop feeds and others you need to encourage. Dd2 still needed those night feeds as she fed 2hrly mostly during the day.

    I delayed solids till 7mths and I found they made nights worse before it improved.

    I might be rambling so I will stop.

    One of my kids was a 2 hrly feeder until 11 months, sleeping through the night at 2 years old.

    Any idea what led them to drop the feeds on their own? Just spontaneously/age and development related?

    Any theories on what changed at 11 months?

    For dd2 I was very much more chilled so she dropped them herself when she was ready.

    Dd1 was a pain in the buttocks. She was feeding in 40min intervals overnight 6-9mths before I had to forcefully drop the feeds to just twice a night.

    My DS fed regularly over night until 14 months when I had to actively night wean him as I was exhausted. He just never stretched those times out even when he started solids/crawling/walking/finished teething etc.

    My DD (5.5 months) usually feeds once a night around 1pm but this does change a bit. 2 weeks ago it was every 2hrs but seems to settle back into longer stretches.

    ETA: To answer your questions - DD seems to wake more to feed during the wonder weeks then settles back into her *usual* routine.

    Best wishes!

    Very true. In hindsight both my older two girls woke more often when teething and during wonder weeks.

    This could be true for us. We've had a constant run of colds, early teething and wonder weeks...
