    i am soooooo tired. For as long as i can remember isla has been waking up to 5 times a night for a full on feed. I breast feed & was stopping at 6 months but now im wondering if she will be more settled on it now? is it normal to feed this much ?

    I cannot go on with so little sleep i have a toddler to look after too & i dont understand why she sleeps so poorly in the night :( x

    If its the convenience why not try expressing into bottles and storing them?

    If its the sleeping/comfort it cant hurt to give formula a go.

    Whatever makes you happy hun x

    Are you sure she is actually waking every time for a feed? Alfie was like this & when i mentioned it to the BF suport nursary nurse she sugested that instead of keep offering the breast as i was doing, to (not pick him up) stroak hiss head & sushh him (i dont do CC or let him CIO) its just sometimes he wakes & needs comfort to get back to sleep & i was just offering the breast every time.

    It took a few nights but he eventually slept for longer without waking. It could be tho that your LO does needfeeding , she might be going through a growth spirt or something.
