The only thing I can think of is just leave him. He'll eventually get the message. If you do the same thing day in day out and roughly the same times he will soon learn. At 15 weeks Jeb was feeding every 4 hours and would be awake for 2 hours then sleep for 2 hours twice a day with a nap of up to an hour in the afternoon. You have to make sure bub is ready to go to sleep but also not over tired. Hope I have helped a little smile
