    Eta: she has a 10/10.30 dream feed as well but I'm not game to try a dream feed again, last time I tried it encouraged him to wake more.

    Because it's warming up here and I'm not demand feeding anymore (not that it was ever demand, I was just constantly offering it) I'm offering him a bottle of cool boiled water every now and then but he's not really interested. He's still having heaps of wet and pooey nappies and hasn't been bothered with the schedule but he was never really fussing for me to constantly feed I just was because of my own worries.

    He goes down around 6.30pm for bed and is waking between 11.30-1 for his first feed and then around 4am for the second which I think is pretty good.

    During the day he doesn't seem hungry, I don't keep track of the times I feed him but it's never more than 2 -2.5 hrs between feeds and he used to only need one boob but occasionally during the days lately I've been giving him both.

    Maybe I don't have enough milk...

    Edit

    Lately his feeds seem shorter than 5 mins

    I also don't even need breast pads anymore... Haven't used them in about 2 months!
    Its not your milk. He is going thru a growth spurt. Trust me. It will get better.

    It's hard during these times to not think something is wrong with your milk. I started looking into formula a couple weeks ago because I was at my wits end every morning.

    Is he having plenty of wet nappies?

    Up all night he didnt sleep well especially from 3 onwards fed well yesterday have no idea why he was waking!!! Im not breastfeeding but we have feeding issues here due to his reflux and cmpi he developed feeding aversions and has had trouble ever since having the nasogastric tube removed....... his driving me nuts!!!!!! I don't know what to do anymore just kind of feel like curly up in a ball in the corner and hoping it will all go away.

    2.15/2.30 (right now I tend to be more 2/2.15) (try not to feed after 3.15)

    6/6.15 bedtime feed (you can split this one and do one breast at 5pm if needed but if he can wait until 6 then do that. If you do one breast at 5pm offer that breast first at 6 to make sure he's emptied it).
    This is very similar to the Save Our Sleep routine that I follow.
    7am feed
    11am feed
    3pm feed
    6:30 feed ( I start at 6:15 as bub takes longer).
    10:30pm dreamfeed (bub rarely takes it)

    My milks good on the routine.

    Poor thing... Can you take bub back to the doctor/clinic to get some advice? I think Bub Hub member Allie Pallie had a bub with the same conditions and might be able to help with some ideas..

    Yeah they're pretty similar but Gina ford is a lot less day sleep than SOS. I'm not following her sleep routine, I just don't feel she allows enough. The nap times and amount I've been doing are a mix of SOS and Babybliss.
