Argh! My 15 week old son feeds every 2-3 hours at night and only snacks during the day. I've tried to feed him more during the day but all he does is a: scream at me, b: spit it out, or c: clamps his lips together!
I wake him at 9pm (before I crawl to bed) and he usually takes 4fl ozs. But it's just not enough! I am finding the 9pm/12am/3am/5am/7am night feeding schedule exhausting!
Please can someone share some simple steps to encourage him to feed during the day and sleep at night?!
My aunt was told by health visitor to give her son baby rice at 11 weeks to help with sleep-this was 20yrs ago, but he turned out fine. Also make sure Isaac gets plenty fresh outdoor air every day (several hours) as this tires them out.
Try doing a 4hr deal with your OH too. Get him to have Isaac for 4 hourrs one day, and you do what you want (sleep, bath etc) then give him same in return. This has worked wonders for me, and i really look forward to my 'morning off'.

its probably a silly question but does he know the difference between night and day? does he have a solid bed time routine?
