Okay, so, my six week old son is now hungry at night... from 11pm-1:30am. I *think* he's trying to get enough to eat so that he can go to sleep, and I caved (I'm exhausted but I know it will get better - this one's #3!) and for the last two nights I've given him two oz of formula which has let us both sleep. And I don't want to!! Are there any recommendations for increasing my night milk production so that we can get some sleep without using commercial tactics?? (Note this has been happening for the last week, prior to that he was getting enough and going to sleep, although this has always been his fussy time.)
I know this is when I'm tired from the day and maybe not hydrated enough, could these be part of the problems??
Any ideas would be great, thanks!!
P.S. I nursed both my older son and daughter but gave up with ds at 6mos and only supplemented with breastfeeding at night, and daughter went 12 mos, but didn't have this problem.
