I need some mom help from others that have been in the trenches. My four month old, now 15+ lbs. was born weighing 9lbs 13oz. He still nurses every two hours most days and wakes every 2-4 hrs at night to eat. I am exhausted, he refuses a bottle. We have tried a co-sleeper, snuggling, sitting up with him, to bed early, bath at bedtime, feeding at bedtime, etc. Our pediatrician just says..."he'll sleep when he's ready" and something similar about his feeding pattern. If I don't feed him (try to stretch out at nighttime) he cries and cries until I do. My other two started sleeping through at around 9 weeks on their own and both were breastfed, though a lot smaller than him.
