Dd's sleeping is quite frankly a nightmare.
When she was newborn she could do 4 hours between feeds at night.
These days from 11pm its every 2 hours until about 8am when we get up.
Im knackered as its been like this since she was a month old.
Her cot is next to our bed, right up against it with the side off so like an extension to the bed but half the time she sleeps in with us anyway as she gets really cold hands on her own.
She is 14 weeks and exclusively breastfed still could she not be getting enough? It always seems like she gets really good feeds at night as she doesn't feed a huge amount in the day time, maybe 4 feeds max between 8am and 11pm.
or could it maybe a comfort thing but then a lot of time she is snuggled up with me anyway.
Im really getting to the point of trying anything if it works even formula but I would rather keep feeding her. Any ideas before I go mad?
I found the best thing we did was for me to express and give her a bottle of EBM at bedtime- also we had a very rigid set routine in the evening of bath and bed and don't waver from it (ok 10 mins or so flex in it) . She slept for 10/11 hours a night from 5 weeks....
Thanks ladies, might try expressed milk in a bottle. She just isnt interested in boob in the day. She actually throws a strop if i offer it to her . Im hoping when she becomes more active she might need the energy more xx
