Hello, my son was born at 36 wks and 5 days, weighed 5.3lbs and considered preemie. He is now one month old (one week corrected age) and was wondering if I should still wake him up for feedings at night? He has gained weight steadily (7.11 lbs on friday) since he came home from the nicu, but they had him on an every 3 hour feeding schedule. I was strictly breastfeeding until a few days ago and we decided to start formula at night. Dr said it's also ok to give him regular formula instead of higher calorie ones for preemies since he's been steady on breast milk and it has the same calories as regular formula...
