My 7 week old baby boy is feeding every 2 hours, even at night, so i'm not getting very much sleep. I am still breastfeeding him and my nipples are starting to get really really sore again. The nurses told me to try and get him to feed every 3-4 hours but when it came to feeding time when they were over they tried to help me distract him so he would go longer but 10 mins in they said just feed him, and you can hear his tummy grumble at the two hour mark.
My hubby and i tried to bottle feed him of a night to try and give me a chance to sleep and because we are thinking of putting him on the bottle because I am getting to tired and to sore but after the first two bottles he refuses to drink from a bottle.
Does any one have any advice on what I should do?
I want to bottle feed coz I am to sore and I find it hard to breastfeeding in public coz I am a size F and it uncomfortable trying to cover myself and he feeds every 2 hours so I never get anything done, and my hubby can't do house work and is trying very hard with my 6yo but he is disabled and can only do so much.
