Brooks will be 7 weeks tomorrow. Last week he dropped his midnight feeding and went to only a 2 & 4am feeding overnight. This week he has sort of dropped his 4 am feeding, but is making crazy noises.
He's not waking up, but is wimpering, almost crying, but not rooting. He also grunts, and moves his legs and arms during this time. At first I didn't know what was going on, so I feed him as usual, but he only nursed for 3-4 minutes.
We're cosleeping, so when he has done this 4am wimpering time, I brought him in closer to me and wrapped my arm around him since he was moving around in an effort to keep him still, sort of swaddeling him with my arm and body.
He still nurses like a champ, so I'm not concerned that he's not getting enough food. I also have gotten up and changed him, but nothing else about this behavior changed, (if you can call it behavior). The noises he makes are loud enough that I'm not able to fall back to sleep which is really rough, especially since they last about 2 hours.
He wakes about 2 hours after the initial fussiness starts and nurses as usual. He also does not do any of this during any of his naps during the day. Please help oh wise ones.
