I was just wondering what I should do with my 10 week old (born early so 7 weeks when adjusted).
He usually had a 3 hourly feeding and occasionally would have a 4 hour stretch in the night but from Friday until last night he has been waking up every 1-1.5 hours and not necessary because of hunger and I don't know why the sudden change! My husband and I thought it would get better but we both don't know what's happening.. (First baby)
I had a look back at his diary and on the Friday my mum and I went out for a few hours to go shopping and he was apparently crying the whole time we were out (husband dropped us off and as soon as we closed the door he started crying an wouldn't stop on the drive back home and at home and my husband even tried to feed him and usually he takes the bottle well but wasn't interested and wouldn't stop crying).
Im im thinking would that incident affect him that night to wake so often? But then to occur on Sat and last night? I don't know what to do...any suggestions would be appreciated.
also I have noticed that his feeds have cut down in time, before it would be like 40mins and now it's like 10,15 mins? Apparently this is normal? But I'm not sure if he is sucking any stronger... He can take 100ml in 10 mins which is what he should be drinking every 3 hours approx and usually after the feed he doesn't seem interested which is fine but I'm thinking can this also be the reason he wakes up so often at night? Coz he is hungry??! So confused...

Have you looked into Wonder Weeks?

No advice on the sleeping as I'm no expert, but The wonder week book or app might be reassuring that the change in his sleep patterns could be a developmental change rather than something you have or haven't done. With regards to feeding, I started a thread in the breast feeding section called "fast feeder" (sorry - not sure how to link from app) and got some really good advice. It might help you too.

Your little one could be having a growth spurt. I also found the wonder week app to be really good. I read in the app that some babies start 'snacking rather than having one really good feed and the had some advice for it so maybe check that out.
A friend of mine also suggested the book baby wise. I have ordered it but it hasn't arrived yet. Apparently it's supposed to be really good.

Do you feed him each time he wakes?
Could be silent reflux which can peak / start around this age.
Google it, or check out the reflux section on here to see if he shows any of the other classic signs.
