Re: EXHAUSTED...

Well, I would encourage you to try to group his feedings every 2&1/2 hours during the day so he's still getting the same caloric intake but grouping it so that sleep happens at night. This is what I've done with all 5 of our kiddos and will do with our 6th as well.

You can read the first of my seven-part play-by-play here if you're interested:

(The same basic principles can apply even tho you're starting later)


Nighttime sleep and sanity are possible. I wouldn't be able to survive long without a good nights sleep. So please no flames but this is what has worked -consistently- wih a variety of sizes and personalities, to get us all sleeping at night sooner.
