My LO (little one) only wakes once a night to eat..I know that's great for this age but he is so inconsistent with when he wakes. For a while he was going 6.5 hours from his bed time bottle to his night feed. But lately he's been all over the place. A few times he has gone all night and woken after 6 am so I don't count that as a night bottle and counted it as his first day bottle. He's done that maybe 3 or so times. Other times he's up at 2 to eat, others 3, others 4, others 5. If he wakes before 2 which sometimes happen I usually just give him a pacifier and pat him back to sleep and that works. I could feed him then but he is usually not screaming and his eyes are usually still closed as he fusses and I know he can go longer without eating.
Should I be doing that more so he sleeps longer all the time? Like past 2 am? The getting up a lot to get him back to sleep is wearing though and just feeding him and knowing he then goes back to sleep and sleeps the rest of the night is nice.
His older brother was fully sleeping through the night at this point sleeping 10 plus hours and that was just sleep so going even longer from last bottle to first..I know that no two kids are the same and I am not comparing them but really wish he were like his brother..
Anyone else have an inconsistent one or any tips or advice?
