My Hudson only goes about 4 hours and then wakes up STARVING. He will cry and cry - we let him go an entire hour once - and not fall back asleep until he's had 4-6 oz of milk. Then he falls asleep and will go another 5 - 7 hours, but he ALWAYS wakes up for a midnight snack.
The pediatrician says he should be able to go 8 hours and not wake up, but he clearly disagrees. We give him a bottle before bed and he usually takes 4-6 oz of that, so it's not that he hasn't eaten for hours before bed.
How are your babies doing? Anyone have tips on how to break him of his need for the midnight snack?
