Nikki_F replied to topic Dream Feeds

Oh, I meant to say also, 4 hourly feeds during the day may be too infrequent for your DS over the 24 hr period, so thats why he needs more at night. I don't know the Tizzie Hall routine, but could...

Nikki_F replied to topic Dream Feeds

Dream feed definitely didn't work for my DS1, and I wouldn't hurry to try them again with DS2. I would wake them to feed but not matter what he'd be too tired and still wake at his normal times. ...

My baby book reminds me that between 6-8 weeks old many babies have a very demanding peroid, possibly due to the huge developmental jumps they make in that time. My DS is feeding every 2-4 hrs at ...

Nikki_F replied to topic Normal?

Are you breast feeding? If you are, you may find your supply lessens if you give less than 6 feeds per 24 hours. But enjoy the sleep!!

My DS is 6 weeks and can manage between 45 and 90 mins at a time, including a feed, before he gets tired. Although, on Sunday he went for 6 hours.... i think he was testing himself, and me!
