Since I posted last, we've successfully breast fed without supplementing! We've nursed in public a couple of times, but we still need to work on it (he likes to look around, but hates to be covered). Ya'll have been so helpful!
So L turned 3 months on November 30th. Previously, he would eat every 3ish hours from 7:00 AM - Midnight and then sleep from 12:30 AM to anywhere from 5:30 AM - 6:00 AM. He would kinda snack and cat nap then till 7:00 AM. He naps once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and then usually from 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM, and then he'll sleep from 10:30 PM to Midnight. This is basically the schedule he set for himself.
Now he wants to eat every hour to 2 1/2 hours. He's hard to put down for a nap and refuses to sleep by himself. At night, he wants to co-sleep and snack every 2-3 hours. We have noticed that he's way more active. He wants to sit up constantly and be held high up. I'm not sure how I would manage without my Moby wrap! He now won't stay in the swing or bouncy sit long, because he can't sit straight up in it. He also hates his pacifier now.
So my question is... Is this like a really long growth spurt? Is he eating more because he's active now? I do love co-sleeping, but to be honest, I don't sleep as well. I'd prefer him to sleep in his Pack N Play beside me, like he used to. I don't mind the snacking at night, but if I'm going to get only 3 hours of sleep at a time, I'd like it to be good sleep! Any tips on getting him to sleep on his own?
Any help would be much appreciated! I will say this... Since he has been eating so much, I get out of doing most of the house work!
