Title: Eat, burp, repeat nightmare at BT
Post by: 1stimer on August 21, 2020, 02:34:54 am
Our 6 wo (2 weeks adjusted) has gotten into this habit at bedtime where he does his feed and beings to drift off and then gets fidgety for a burp. Once he's burped, he almost always is awake And looking for more and so the cycle continues for sometimes 2 hours. We pushed his bedtime routine by almost an hour because it was taking so long for me to settle him for the night. We do bath around 8ish and then once he's clean, lotioned and dressed we nurse. Currently I'm "triple feeding" so I nurse then give a bottle then pump. He has a recessed chin so his breasteeds don't get him everything he needs yet. Starting around 4 he's cluster feeding and taking cat naps. I'm still learning his cues for hunger and sleep but currently for the most part, if he's awake he wants to eat. I'm just trying to see if I'm forgetting some magic burp trick? I don't remember this issue with either of my other BW kids. He was 6.7 when he was born at 36 weeks on July 7th and he was just shy of 9 when we went for his growth check last Tuesday.

It's his unsettled period...I was told, one 2-3 hour unsettled period (mostly in the witching hours of evening) a day, one unsettled day a week and one unsettled week a month was pretty normal and average. Also with 36week babies, often they 'catch up' quickly and it could easily be a growth spurt.

That makes sense. I feel like we have a solid routine and I just can't see what would cause him to be so unsettled..he has a witching hour starting around 4 but that's when all he wants to do is eat....so having an "unsettled" period would add up.
