Anybody else still getting awakened by their little lovelies in the middle of the night for a feeding?
Little Bubs usually wakes up around 12:30-2:30 and wants to eat. We try to get him back to bed without, but it doesn't work and he ends up sucking down a full 7oz which is more than he eats during the rest of his feedings. I top him off before bed around 8-830 but he's still waking up. The doctor swears to me he should be able to go for at least 10 hours without eating if hes getting over 20oz during the day, but I can't break him of it.
I think part of the problem is he's not eating enough during the day, some days he crushes 4, 6oz bottles, other times he's taking 2 here, 4 there and that's all, but its always over 20oz. He's seriously the busiest baby I've ever met, even day care is like 'Little man has better things to do than finish that bottle he cried for".
For awhile I was waking him around 11-11:30 and topping him off again, sometimes that would keep him through the night, but about 60% of the time it wouldn't and sometimes i'd make a 6 oz bottle and he'd only eat an oz, so i gave that up.
Any other suggestions?
