I'm a first time mom and EBF my son who just turned 3 months. He has been a champ at nursing, though there have been some tough times where he nursed 'round the clock. He has silent reflux and after figuring that out and getting him on meds at 7 weeks, he started doing so great! We put him in his own room and he nursed every 3 hours at night and once went 4 hours (it was amazing!).
About 2ish weeks ago he started nursing a LOT more frequently at night!! Anywhere from 45minutes to 2 hours between feedings at night. We have not had a 3 hour stretch since then. Lately, he falls alseep (hard!) around 8ish. He sleeps for an hour and wakes up, then just kind of chatters and nurses 'til 10 when he sleeps again. Then he'll sleep for about 2 hours at a time (sometimes less) with only a 1 hour stretch in there somewhere. He nurses decently when I go to feed him, but not in a really hungry sort of way. It doesn't seem to matter if I feed him on only one side or both, he'll only go about 2 hours. Nothing in our routine or daily life has changed. He sleeps in the same place (swing), has a cool, dark room, is dry, clean and swaddled.
I do wait just a little bit to see if he's just making noise or really needs me and he never settles without me going in and nursing him.
Any advice on what may be happening or how to get him back up to 3 hour stretches?
