    So new routine for ds. If he's napped for 1.5-2hrs he stays up for 2.5 hrs 😁 And doesn't need a feed to go back down. Weird! He seems to also be eating less these days. Only a couple of 150-180 ml and the rest only 80-100ml.

    OK, tonight is pretty messed up. Yesterday, at least DS was able to fall back to sleep on and off during the 2.5 hr period (3--5:30pm) with me helping him to transit the sleep cycle. And then i fed 3/4 bottle at 5:30pm and forced down the 1/4 at 6:30pm. Today, he was getting 1hr max during (3--5pm). I supsect that he was just hungry sometime in between. A full bottle usually last 3.5--4 hrs and more if he is sleepy. The last meal by the carer wasn't even a full bottle at 12:30pm. The problem is that she is feeding him way too often and he isn't hungry enough to take a full bottle.

    So he woke up screaming for food as i expected at 5pm!!! See...i was planning to feed him at 3pm before he asked for the nap but he didn't want it. He preferred nap than food. Again, i really don't know how the carer manages to feed him and then nap. He was already so tired at 9:30am when i dropped him off and she went on feeding him at 10am.

    I used yesterday tactic but he was so tired that he didn't want any more milk at 6:30pm. I coudn't even force it down the rest. I put him to bed 40 mins earlier than yesterday with a 1/4 empty stomach and an early feed at 5pm instead of 6:30pm. Tonight is going to be fun.........

    Oh..i think is 3 hrs behind in WA.
    @Gelati: oh...i am formula feed so under 3 hrs is too much if DS takes a full bottle before. Of course, it takes a few days for us to find out that the new formula doesn't last as long as nan comfort with the same amount. We just increase the amount with this formula. DS doesn't increase per feed intake after dropping 1 night feed. So the total amount per day is actually less than what he used to eat. I suspect that baby can't gain weight exponentially. It has to slow down!

    It looks like i better have an early night. Oh.....bub bed time is 7pm because DH is home at 6pm. Basically, we don't want him to wake up before 7am, although he normally wakes up as soon as the sun is up and then makes a huge fuss. We have to let him sleep on us after that. Weird...

    I only carry formula too when I go out. I'm just too worried carrying EBM for too long as it might go off. I don't want to be house bound expressing and feeding only. I'm just thinking of what to do if I'm out for more than 4 hours.

    No that's it just adjust from that black button. That's what I do too. So it should be the right tightness then.
    @Gelati one of my friends bubba is about the same age as your DS. Hers also feed more earlier then smaller feed. It's ok. Do you still get 8 wet nappies a day? I would say your son knows what he's doing
    @bbhope how did you and DS go tonight / last night? 3 nights down by the way! How much is he drinking Ler feed? Also what happens if he wakes up before 7 am? Do you try to put him to sleep longer without a feed? And what happens if then he wakes up after 7? Do you wake him up or let him sleep longer?

    Just dropped DS off. Half an hr later than usual. I really wanted to give him a nap before that because i now know the carer won't put him to nap until after he has a feed at 10am. That's nearly 4hrs since he wakes up. No wonder she told me that he was so grumpy yesterday. See...just got a message, she is feeding again! Under 3hrs. I really like to keep it feed, wake and sleep schedule. If he doesn't nap long enough before the next feed, jut play other than trying for another bottle.

    He was eating like 100ml each time. Not a full bottle when she fed him just under 2 hrs. Counter productive.

    Anyway, I certainly know what to ask when I visit other daycare and see what their daily routine is like in the future.

    Oh...DS normally wakes up when the sun is up. 5ish. And he usually cries. We put him back to bed. Most of the time DH has to rock him. Don't ask me why he can't sleep in the cot during the day! If he has enough sleep, he wakes up smiling not crying. Of course, in some occasions that he is hungry then we don't force him back to sleep. I dot wake him up if he wants to sleep pass 7am. He hasn't slept pass 7:30am ever anyway. More trouble of getting him to sleep longer. Lol. I might try to adjust the wake time to 6:30am soon given that I am going back to work and if I want to participate the playgroup. At least he will get one nap before the playgroup.

    I am having brekkie at a cafe. So many moms with baby. Feel so bad that I could only have a meal out without DS! Lucky you minib!

    @Minib: last night was ok. DS made a lot of noise for stomach pain again so I woke up and checked him out a lot. I am going to get this baby monitor set up today.

    Oh u were asking about his feed. He normally eats 120--180ml with this new formula. I give 120ml first. If he is enthusiastic and finishes the bottle, I will top him off to 150ml and then 180ml. With 180ml, will last him 4 hr easily.

    @Minib thank you for asking... no plans yet.. I had my lap on Friday... oh boy can of worms... Im reeling a bit from it, the burst tube that I was told that was removed 5.5 years ago was still there... all this time leaking causing issues.... makes sense, my fertility has been at its worse since my ectopic, i had always fallen preg naturally before then.... so right now we're angry, trying to find silver lining that perhaps this is the answer, or the piece to the puzzle my FS suggested on friday during post op... its just so much money & time, and heartache we've been through... Going to try and get my head and body right before we transfer our normal emby... FS even suggests perhaps we could go back to clomid now?! Good news is my left side (the whole reason she went in expecting that one to be diseased now) is just fine... I had a cyst removed on my ovary which i think was left over from the 2 EPU.....

    I do have a phone follow up with Dr M tomorrow.. will be interesting to see what he says.


    Ugh, 2 more sleeps til DH is home, im so tired from the procedure, exhausted and uncomfortable still..

    sorry for the whoah is me party... its been a hard week...
    Big hugs to you and your little ones xx

    @bbhope - you don't want ds to wake before 7am but he goes down at 7pm - that's a long time. How often does he wake between that time? And you try not to feed him? I am impressed you can keep to such a schedule. Even if ds is on full formula no way I can get him to go down without a feed once he wakes he dictates his own schedule but funny enough no matter what the day is he always seems to go to bed at 9:30 and wakes around 6 am with one wake in between sometimes. Then he sleeps till 9:30am or sometimes 10:30am. Last night his last feed was 7pm then bed at 9:30 and slept till 6:30am! Went almost 12 hrs without a feed and he only fed 100ml at 7😳

    I know wish I could go out with ds. Wish I bought a capsule. @Minib what do you do if dd falls asleep in the car seat?

    Yeh ds def eating less. It's true I think they do eat less at this stage. He still has lots of wet nappies and 2 poos a day. He def doesn't over eat. If it's only been 2 hrs since his last feed he really doesn't have much. Maybe 80ml then he plays a little and I put him back down. Luckily after 2 catnaps he now seems to then do a bigger sleep.

    Is dd doing well today?

    I think baby sleeps between 10--12 hrs at night at this age. That's why aiming 7 to 7. He is the one who sets up the bedtime. He is normally in the evil stage by 6pm because he doesn't get enough nap. DS max nap hrs is 3. Far below average. 8pm is a good bedtime for us but we can't keep him up that long. The wake time varies. After waking up at 12:30am for two weeks when we switched the formula, he is now back to 2--3am wake time (last night was 1:30am, not as bad as i thought). After feed, he goes down straight away. The second half varies a LOT. His sleep cycle is very short or maybe his stomach is bothering him. Yes, he tends to have a LOT of gas in early morning hrs after the night feed. In the past, 2 night feeds was a nightmare. He would start kicking and grunting due to gas after midnight (the first night feed) and all the way until morning. Now, he can be becoming unsettled every hr from 3am until 7am. Usually, if he is only half awake, pacifier works. If pacifier doesn't work and he is crying, rock to sleep it is. Of course, we observe the situation. If he is crying due to hunger, we will feed him. Unlikely if he just has 150ml at 2am. Most of the time it isn't. DH fed him a couple time and he just fussed and wanted to sleep instead! If he wakes up happy, then he is up. He has been very good the last two nights. He only started fussing at around 5ish when the sun is up! I went back to his room, put the pacifier in a couple of times and slept on the spare bed. When DH is around, he deals with him from 5am. He has given up sleeping after 5am because it is just too much work to keep DS asleep. I am not sure if he will sleep better when the sunrise pushes back a little later in a few months time.
