hi ladies! I have a 3 month old son who I put to bed at 7:30pm. He will usually sleep for about 3 to 3 1/2 hours, then after that wakes up every hour and a half to 2 hours throughout the night to nurse. He is EBF (nursing at night and before I leave for work in the morning, bottles with the babysitter during the day). I am concerned that I am not giving him a good chance to develop good sleeping habits and that when I finish nursing (goal is one year), he will be used to waking up during the night. He also sleeps either in his bassinet in our room or we co-sleep if he is fussy. I also have a 2 year old son who got a bottle of formula before bedtime starting at 6 weeks and he started STTN in his crib in his own room then.
I hope this isn't a dumb question! DH thinks we should start giving him formula at night to help him fill up. Appreciate any thoughts. thanks!
