Just looking for some opinions from mothers who have gone through this.
My son is 3 months old 1 week tomorrow and is bottle fed. He eats about 5 ounces every three to four hours during the day and wakes up around 1am and eats 2-4 ounces and then wakes up around 5 am for another 2-4 ounces. Usually closer to 4 ounces at each feeding. I have read so many things about weaning him from the night time feedings. He is a pretty good sleeper. He usually always goes at least 5 hours without a feeding and more often is going 6 or 7 hours without a feeding. One night he woke up and I just gave him the paci and he went right back to sleep for another 3 hours. Only that one night though. lol
Is it too soon to start the weaning process? I have read that maybe four months is a better time to start it, but I am a single mother and I am desperate for a little more sleep and sometimes I feel like he may be able to do this. Then I think I am being a bad parent and it is too early. So I am in a big debate with myself. Any experiences and advice would be helpful. Thanks Moms!
