Alex is 11 weeks and is feeding every couple of hours day and night, except in the evenings when he feeds pretty much non-stop.
Last night he finally went down at 11.30pm and fed at 2am, 4am, 6am, 7am and 8am.
He doesn't sleep much during the day either, catching little snoozes here and there, and sometimes has about 2 hours on an afternoon but that's it. He is such a light sleeper and even laying him down wakes him up, and he rarely self settles. He doesn't seem bothered by this lack of sleep though and is mostly awake, alert and content.
We have tried routines and topping up with expressed milk in the evening but nothing has worked. I keep hearing mums telling me about how their baby of the same age sleeps through the night and feel like I'm doing something wrong (although I know I'm not as my first son fed the same during the day and evening but slept through from 10 weeks).
Just after some solidarity I think, and sympathy LOL! x
