Hi all. This is my first proper post so forgive me if I ramble!
My DS is 11 weeks old. After fighting with OS and OALD, we have finally been getting somewhere. Block feeding has really helped. He has a very healthy weight gain, was 7lb 2 at birth and is now almost 14lbs.
BUT evenings are a nightmare. He becomes possessed! A bath calms him down but then he loses it. It's as though he's tired, hungry and a bit confused all at the same time. When I nurse him he is just on and off, not staying latched for very long at all. Then all of a sudden, sometimes after 2 hours of this performance, he will fall asleep and nurse quite well for a few minutes. Around 9 ish he will then settle and go to bed - last night he didn't wake to feed until 3.30am, and then only for about 10 minutes. It's as though his evening performance is preparing him for a good long stretch of sleep!?
Our first son used to cluster BF in the evenings but didn't get upset like number 2!
So, sorry to ramble, but to conclude, he is gorgeous but the evenings are killing me!! Have tried putting him in the sling, rocking etc. Does anyone have any suggestions to make this easier or any similar experiences?
Grateful for any help?!!
