I am returning to work here in a few days and my 8 week old wakes every 2 hours to eat. After he eats he spends so much time trying to push gas out, I get about 20 min of sleep between feedings. I keep him up most of the day. He eats about 5oz, I have tried more and he spits that up. He gets the Mylicon drops with every feeding to help burping. I have also tried 1/2 tsp. of rice cereal in one nightly bottle and it slightly constipates him. I am going to be working 12 hour shifts and can't imagine trying to make it through the day on 2 hours of sleep. I see moms who have their babies this age sleeping 4-6 hours at a time. Anyone have advise to help both of us get those much needed Zzzzz's?
