Can you post your LO's feeding & sleep schedules? Here is mine below. I think my biggest problem is dinner ends up being too late and my LO isn't hungry enough for a before bedtime milk feeding so she then wakes up around 10pm or midnight.
between 7:30 - 10:00pm - struggling to get her to bed, combination of nursing & formula, rocking, pacifier etc. baby sometimes wakes a few times after, many times around midnight. This is what i need to fix.
7 - up, nurse, eat breakfast
9 - nurse, nap
11 - nurse
11:30 - lunch
1 - nurse, nap
3:30 - nurse
5 - dinner
5:30 - nurse and bed
7 - nurse
9 - nurse
11 - nurse
and so on and so forth through the night...although the last couple nights have been 45 minutes rather than 2 hours.

Surprise baby! due 3/27/2017
Sarah doesn't have too much of a schedule other than at night. She usually settles down for bed around 7-8 and wakes up around 6-7. She usually takes a morning nap around 8-9. She may take an afternoon nap but it varies depending on what we are doing and how psycho my big girls are being. Feeding is mostly ebf on demand with some solids in there randomly.
7 am - nurse
8:30 am - breakfast (solids)
10 am - nurse and nap
12 pm - lunch (solids)
1 pm - nurse and nap
4 pm - nurse and sometimes a nap haha
5:30 pm - dinner (solids)
7 pm - nurse and bed for the night
That can vary by 30 minutes to an hour but I try to keep him on that schedule of only nursing 5 times a day now. He's not eating very much solids at a time, I'm sure a day will come soon when this changes.
Jessica's schedule is basically mine. We still nurse every two-ish hours and give solids sporadically. He naps around 10, 2 and 5 and then is ready for bed around 7 or 8.
This almost exactly.
To add - Adalyn isn't sleeping through the night. Some nights she is up within 45 minutes & just needs to be rocked.. Then will wake up between 11-1 to nurse. Some nights se won't wake until 2-3ish to nurse. Then she's normally up 1-2 more times after that. Up for the day between 7:30-8
7:30 am - awake
Breakfast: puffs, banana, avocado, purees, whatever's around
10:30 am - 8 oz formula and off to sleep
12:00 pm - awake
Lunch: same as breakfast
2:30 pm - 8 oz formul and off to sleep
4:00 pm - awake
Dinner: same as breakfast and lunch - sometimes 2 purees, a ton of puffs, some crackers, and some bananas and avocado - she's typically quite hungry in the evening
7:30 pm - 8 oz and off to bed
11:30 pm - 6 oz and back to sleep
4 am - 6 oz and back to sleep
I don't love the two nighttime feedings but they're not bad at all compared to what some of the ladies are going through with sleep, as she typically just fusses, we feed her, she falls back to sleep. No playing or REALLY waking up or crying or anything between 7:30 pm and 7:30 am.
