    My lo has slept for 3 hour between feeds since the day she was born, sometimes longer in the hospital and sometimes longer now at home if I disturb her like take her out etc she then seems to go the extra hour apart from at night. The past 2 nights she has woken very 2 hours and I dont know why. She increased her ounces to 4 on Monday and has pretty much stuck to that, sometimes she doesnt finish every bottle but the majority of the time she does.

    Last night I put her down in her crib (which she isn't keen on either she prefers to fall asleep on me but I am trying to stop that as shes fine during the day) about 10.30 then she woke for feed at 12.30, she fell asleep on me when I ws winding her so I left her and I fell asleep too, waking up about 2.0 so I put her in her crib again and this disturbed her so she woke properly about 3 for more feed and it took me a good hour to settle her back down again as she was very restless again.

    I dont understand what I am doing different during the day and why she needs to have so much during the night.

    Maybe she has her night and days mixed up a little bit. My Lo was the same, the health visitor said to not let him sleep more than 2 hours at a time during the day, we did this for a week or so and he slept much better at night. X

    Oh hun you aren't doing anything wrong! Your baby is still so very, very young - it will be a long time until she gets into any sort of routine.

    There are lots of growth spurts to contend with, which usually result in extra night feeds, and we all get hungry at different times every day.

    You sound like you're doing just fine. Carry on listening to what your baby wants and it will all settle down again xx

    I know shes happy, shes lying here on her changing mat wriggling and kicking and seems contended and shes been awake since 7.30 so I dont think its down to her having too much sleep during the day as she has started to stay awake a lot longer (to begin with she was barely awake lol)

    I shall just go with what she wants for now and see what happens
