I have a 6 week old who was sleeping 4+ hours at the hospital, but as soon as we got home started only sleeping 2-3 hours. He now is eating a lot more and is still only sleeping 3 hours (sometimes less and I have to hold off feedings until the 3 hour mark). I have a 14 month old and whenever she upped her feedings she slept longer,but he refuses to go longer than 3 hours. He is bottle fed and eating 4 ounces. He is a big baby (11 lbs. already-born 7 lbs. 7 ounces) and I worry that he is overeating. How can I get him to just go a little longer between feedings?
