From all the posts I've been reading with all these babies STTN or only waking up once, I'm starting to wonder what I'm doing wrong... L wakes up every 2 hours at night, usually to eat, once in a while he just stirs and cannot get himself back to sleep without me soothing him. He will go right back to sleep once he's eaten or after just a couple minutes of soothing. If I leave him on his own when I hear him stir, he will eventually start crying. I feel he is too young to CIO, so I always go to him. He will not take a paci, but does sometimes suck on his fingers to self soothe during the day, however he will not do this at night to put himself back to sleep.
During the day he eats every 2-3 hours typically (demand feeding) and I EBF. I rarely pump, but when I do after 2 hours I usually get 4oz total. I'm wondering now if he's eating and waking so often because of there not being enough milk for him to last longer? When he was 4-6 weeks old he would sleep for up to 5 hours at a time, but that ended too quickly. He has 3 naps during the day, at least 1 hour each. Am I doing something wrong that is hampering his ability to STTN or at least sleep for longer stretches?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
