My 10 week DS number two has never been a great sleeper and we have mainly co slept at night and used sling in day. The last week he is feeding 1.5-2 hourly max round the clock. Feeds seem less effective and at night he can get v fussy. Often he falls asleep feeding, I cuddle him to me and he cries and roots again. This can lead to seemingly never ending cycle and it feels like neither of us get any proper sleep. Up until last week he would occasionaly go down in Moses basket or side car cot but now will only sleep at night on top of me.
Two nights ago I got so upset/tired at 2am we gave him 3oz formula and he instantly fell asleep and slept for 3 hours not on me. I couldn't sleep as felt heartbroken! This is the only time he has had formula though.
So what am I doing wrong?
I would like to express to increase supply and let ny husband maybe give him one bottle at night but at the moment I have no opportunity and when I do try to express after a feed I get virtually nothing.
Any advice much appreciated.
