Hello! I have successfully and solely been breastfeeding my 4.5 month (2.5 months adjusted) old babies! Bottle-feeding and nursing. They are on a four hr schedule feeding between 5-6am, 9am, 1pm, 5pm, and now 8pm in order to get them to bed earlier. My concern is that I have been waking them to feed in order to stick to our schedule... If I let them sleep I fear that they would get fewer feedings. I let them sleep today and they were ready to eat between 7 and 8am.
The question is: am I ok to wake them and stick to our schedule where they consume 5-6 oz a feeding with the four hr schedule OR should I be letting them sleep which throws off our schedule and how much food they are consuming?
Thanks in advance!!!
