Hi everyone, Im new to this website. I have twin boys Carl and Paul who were born 3rd April 09. Paul is a little angel and sleeps about 8 - 12 hours every night from 7 pm but Carl is not so angelic (except for when he smiles when he can melt anyone's heart) and he has a magical built in alarm which goes off every 4 hours!
I have tried giving him water which sometimes sends him back off but not always. I have tried reducing his feeds at night but this doesnt always work either. I have been weaning him for about 3 weeks now and he hasnt taking to solids brilliantly but I am encouraging him as much as possible. He takes a 6 ounce feed of Aptimal but doesnt always finish this. Through the night I restrict this to 4 ounces but I stop sooner (usually about 2) if he looks like he will go down to sleep on less.
Any other advice gratefully welcome or even just some reassurance that 'I am not alone!' would be good !!
Alison, Carl and Paul
