I'm just curious about all your schedules... I am fighting to fit in a 6th feeding each day with my 4.5 month old. My pedi actually said its ok to drop to 5 as I feel like I'm constantly waking her up. She sleeps from 8:30 pm till I wake her up between 7-7:30 depending on my older DD's preschool schedule. Her wake time now is about an hr and 45 minutes. She feeds between 30-45 minutes and if I try to feed her again before a nap she just falls asleep. However, to get 6 in a day, I need to keep her on a 2.5-3 hr schedule which means I'm always waking her up from naps! I also think I need to put her down earlier at night given her cues and the fact that I have to wake her each morning, but that would mean possibly dropping to 5 feedings. And shes hardly interested in 1 of her evening feedings. She's doing well- she gained 4 lbs on 2 months. Here is a general idea of our day:
10- wake to feed
1:00 wake to feed
6, 6:30 feed (hardly interested)
4.5 months just seems early to me to drop to 5, but I fear I'm not letting her get enough sleep!
