#1 My two month old has started waking up at 4-5am for a feeding; After sleeping for5-6 hours. Not a problem but after she nurses she is only going back to sleep for 45min before she starts to cry again. Last night I burped her and changed her and she fed on both breasts. This was never a problem before even when she was going through growth spurts and nursing all night. She continues to do this all morning. I am not a morning person so this is making me nuts.
#2 Since she is sleeping for 4-5hrs I'm not sure when to top her off at night. It seems that I feed her at 11pm and we are sleeping by midnight but my spouse and I are getting really exhasted from goinig to bed so late. And I am only sleeping 4 hours at night b/c of the #1 problem. I can't nap during the day b/c of my other daughter. I'm running out of gas!
#3 Sometimes baby doesn't nurse well. Meaning she will shake her head back-and-forth with the nipple in her mouth and refuse to suck. This is happening during times when she is for surely hungry. Why won't she suck if she is hungry. I'm not worried about too strong of a let down and my diet really hasn't changed. I try to keep her burped. Again, I'm confused.
Thanks for your help!
