Oh Nic.. I'm so sorry!
Ella was awake from 8pm to 11pm and we are scratching our heads too . I basically fed for 2 hours straight, but that didnt help at all.
I guess you have tried a bath?
How about trying to keep bubs awake after each feed during the day and feeding more often
Then just not waking at night?
Sunshine also helps establish day/night.
I'm so sorry and I hope something works fast for you!!!!

Hi everyone, haven't been on much, just been busy as I'm sure you understand
Nic, you will need to wake her 3 hourly for a couple of days at least for it to start making a difference, also start a night time routine and sick to it. It basically acts as sleep cues that its bed time. It will get better.
To everyone who is down, I think having ivf bubbas makes it harder in a way because you feel like you shouldn't have these feelings after working so hard to have one. If it doesn't go away then go see your gp or mchn.
Afm: Eliana is 12 weeks old today, time goes so fast. The first 8 weeks were really hard, she has silent reflux and so simply screamed if she was not upright. Or she would grunt and strain and groan and just be in pain, it was not a lot of fun. She is on medication now and is doing much better. I love being a mummy.

Thanks girls, ill keep on the routine for more days....I suppose I am just happy that she doesn't do it ALL day as well I fell asleep after the 5am feed once age settled about 6 so this feed is a 4 hourly but ill do my best for 3 rest of the day. It's not 40 degrees here anymore, finally ! It's been so hot since she was born, today we will go for a walk.
Greb 12 weeks already!!! She is cute! What is silent reflux?

Great to hear from you Greb and to hear your loving life.
We had a rough night to last night Will was waking ever 1.5 hours. I still am having trouble with him latching. He just doesn't take enough boob so is just sucking on my nipple and the are so red and sore. I asked the midwife at weight in about seeing a LC but there is only one private around that I would have to pat for. Does anyone have any tricks I can try before having to pay for help?
The midwife also said that waking newborns during the day doesn't make them sleep better at night and it can make things worse by making them over tired. It will get better Nic just try and sleep as much as possible during the day.

Have used shields a few days but he gets very frustrated with them and as soon as I take them away he is back to nipple chomping. Really want to get this sorted cause I really dread each feed.
