ok,i know LO will change his routine many times, but still was wondering if you could help:
my almost 3 month old LO used to go to bed at around 8-9pm and then wake up every 3hrs for a feed (his EBF) which was absolutely fine with me, but for the last couple of days he's waking up every 1.5hrs! he feeds for only ~20min and then fall back asleep.
maybe he's not getting enough milk and that wakes him up sooner?
how long does LO normally feed for each time? My LO feeds for about 20 mins each feed every time, although I know it was longer when she was younger. I can't remember how long for at your LO's age but I don't think it was much longer than 20 mins, maybe 25 mins. Does you LO self-settle to sleep or feed/get rocked etc to sleep? I think they go through periods of light sleep where sometimes they wake up and aren't actually hungry but just have trouble getting themselves back to sleep. I think mine started sucking her thumb at about 3 months and I used to hear her a couple of times a night sucking her thumb really loudly and settling herself (I haven't heard her do it for a while now though). It could otherwise be a growth spurt and maybe LO is really hungry!
Growth spurts aren't always cluster feeding.. they can just mean an increase in milk intake, which means feeding more often, not necessary constantly. Hopefully in a few days he'll settle back into a better routine
