    Default Sleep issues at Week 24

    I am not sure if this is normal so I am asking for opinions here. About 2 weeks ago my bub was on a wake up routine like this: 1.30, 2.30, 4.30, 5.30, 6.30am
    In the day he was difficult as well (generally) I later found that this was a fussy stage (wonder weeks) and eventually he slept better again

    We were already on a pumpkin puree at 6pm everyday but for personal reasons I am stopping them and will be back on pure breastfeeding until he is 6months. His last feed is usually 6-7pm and he will naturally want to sleep at about 7.30pm-8pm.

    He woke up 1.30am, 3am, 4, 5, 6am. He usually sleeps again after feeding

    He looks fine in the day and have 2 naps generally one hour in the morning and 2-3hrs in the afternoon.

    I think last night my husband gave him dreamfeed at 9.30pm but he was screaming. He woke up at 2am for a feed.

    I guess my question is is it normal to be waking up so frequently at night at 24 weeks? I don't think its another growth spurt as he appears ok in the day (or maybe because I don't fully monitor him as my relative is taking care of him partly)

    I notice he doesn't feed as frequently in the day, sometimes up to 3 hours before the next feed. I sometimes offer him but he doesnt take much either, more curious to play or see or do something else. I have heard that if they don't eat enough in the day they wake up lots at night to get their food intake?

    They do- it's called reverse cycling.
