    Default 3mth old overnight feeding

    Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience and any tips.

    DS is 3months and is sleeping well, down about 9pm, through till 8:30am but in the last week he's changed from feeding every 3-4 hours to every 2-3. I've tried rocking him back to sleep without feeding to check if he's just stirring and not actually hungry but he's definitely hungry, and he is a big boy - 7kgs.

    I'm going to try tonight waking him up a bit more with a nappy change so hopefully he feeds a bit longer and then has a longer sleep interval, but just wondered if anyone has any other advice?

    Will it all change soon anyway if we start introducing solids from 4.5months?

    I'm happy to feed every 2-3 if this all pretty normal and he's just hungry but I am finding it exhausting not getting longer blocks of sleep.

    Thanks

    I think it sounds completely normal.

    He's probably growing and he needs the extra milk..

    Try and rest when you can!

    A growth spurt is common at this age. Good luck
