Hi all - I have an 8 week old little boy who is EBF. He's gaining VERY well (is already over 15lbs), wets, dirties, everything right on target. He's sleeping nicely at night.
My question is about the daytime.
Here is our basic schedule so far.
Wakes at 6 or so am, eats fully (only one side), then asleep again until 8:30 or 9 am.
Eats fully again, wants to go right back to sleep around 10. However, we're lucky if he sleeps until 11. Then, he wants to eat but gets frustrated. He'll generally fall BACK to sleep after barely eating anything - fussing, pulling away, etc.
Then, he'll sleep somewhere around 1230 or so until 2. Wakes up, eats fully.
Then back to sleep around 3. Awake by 4. Maybe eat fully.
Small nap around 5.
Back to eating again. Attempt another nap by 630 or 7.
Full asleep "for the night" around 830 or 9. He will wake about 1 or 2x in the middle of the night.
Is that all normal? Why is he only "snacking" and barely eating at the 11am/12 pm feeding?
Clearly, he wants for nothing - he's huge...lots of sweet baby arm and leg rolls. But, I'm frustrated. Am I just hoping too early for him to take awesome naps?
