Started to wake again during the night... why?!
What happens? You think you have a grasp on the routine and know what to expect when suddenly you get thrown off course yet again! My little one is nearly 4 months old. We weaned her onto the bottle at 3 months and it was tough but she is taking it fantastically now and is far more relaxed and happy!
She started to do 10/12 hour nights when she took the bottle properly in the first couple of weeks.. she could only manage a maximum of 6-8 when I was breastfeeding and that was rare! Thing is, this week she has decided to wake up at 2am, and then a possible 5am before her morning wake up at 9am. (she has her last feed by 9pm every night) She takes 5/6 oz every feed, 5 per day, and when she wakes in the night, another one then. Am I not feeding her enough in the day? Does she need more stimulation, more activities in the day to tire herself out for a long sleep? My boyfriend has been working nights this week and she usually sees Daddy in the evening, so I am thinking that it may be because of not seeing Daddy before bed? She has taken longer to put down too. So it makes sense, but I am not sure that it could make a real difference? Any advice?
