Me and my oh have been keeping a mental note of how many times our little one is being fed a day, now not so long back say a few days he was fine to have his 6th bottle (all at 4oz) before bed and sleep throughout the night. However around 3 days ago he has all of a sudden shown signs of hunger a lot more before his usual sleeping time at around 12, there was one night when we had to feed him 3 bottle's ranging between 3 and 4oz in the space of 3 hours!. And tonight me and my oh thought we should give boost his last bottle from his usual 4 and a half ounce to 5oz just before bed, however a matter of half an hour later he was screaming his head off!. Before even contemplating giving him more milk we tried changing, holding, rocking, giving him his dummy but the only thing that worked was to give him yet another 2 1/2oz of milk. Why has this all of a sudden happened? there's nothing wrong with him well any signs should I say, he's very perky and fine from morning till late evening. But just before bed it's like he likes to stock up on lots of milk as though he's going to hibernate for 2 days lol?
When my younger DD started to demand more and more feeds, it turned out she had colic. She was too young to distinguish between pain and hunger, and she'd feed until she threw up then try to start again.
If he's feeding and keeping it down then ignore this thought -- just wanted to suggest it was possible.
