I've noticed that when Zack sleeps in our bed, he wakes up a lot to eat. I'm always switching sides and then going back to sleep. Is this normal? I love sleeping in bed with him but I feel like I get less sleep when hes there since he just wakes randomly fussing wanting to eat.
Henry has been in our bed since he was 2 weeks old. Sometimes he will have several nights of waking to eat a lot and other times he'll eat 1-2 times. It could be a growth spurt or it could be needing that extra bit of comfort that nursing provides. Sorry that doesn't really help!
Ellianna "sleeps" in her crib. Lately though she goes to bed around 8 but gets up hourly until 2 and then stays in her crib until about 5. If I get her, nursing is a must (only way I can get her to sleep). DH rocks her though so that she is not nursing every single hour.
With my first one, if he was in the bed with me he was always nursing. If he was in his crib he only woke up 1-3 times. I found that I liked co-sleeping better during the day for naps but at night I'd rather he be in his crib.
I figured out that he was just snacking all night but if he woke up all the way to eat he would have a meal and go back to sleep.
