How often are you feeding your babies, whether it's breast or bottle?
I feel like Jacob is eating alot. Last night he woke up every two hours to eat and then this morning it's been every 2 hours to hour and a half. Wondering if he is going through a growing spurt. I hope it's over soon. It is no fun getting up every 2 hours during the night. But the gas still seems to be gone due the mylecon. Yay so glad. He would eat and then fall right back to sleep which before the drops would never happen. He would eat and then scream for a while before going back to sleep.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
Sofia is eating about every 2-3 hours during the day and then once she is asleep for the night, she will sleep for 4 hours, get up eat, go back to sleep, and eat in 4 hours again and then be back on her every 2-3 hour schedule. Toward the evening hours lately she has wanted to eat about every 1.5-2 hours. I am feeding her expressed milk via bottle. At night if she needs to be topped off after a bottle because she just didn't get enough, then I will just nurse her for about 10 minutes and she is good to go. She is definitely growing though. She grew a whole inch in 2 weeks according to her doctor appointment.
*Thank you AlexKatieAidenMommy for my awesome siggie*
during the day it varies I honestly never keep track it's just whenever he wants/ i can although yesterday and today he wants to be on the boob constantly like seriously if he is awake he has to be nursing or else he is fussing. At night he goes 3-4 hours and even then he only eats a little bit before going back to sleep.
Kaelan is bf about every 3 hours or so during the day... Or pretty much whenever he wants it... Depending on whether I am at work or not.. I work shift work so its sort of all over the place, if I am at work and dh is having problems , he will have his formula small bottle then instead of at night.. it works well...Other than that he has a small amount of formula after his night bf before he goes to bed to help with his weight gain problems we are having etc....
And is sleeping through the night from about 11pm to about 6 am...
