Naps / Re: Please help!! 4 Month old not transitioning sleep cycles

Hi aimi hope itís ok to ask here as I know this isnít my posting but how did you remove the dummy? Did you just stop giving it? I also use it to help soothe lo to sleep and also to help him back to sleep if he wakes ... is it a case of taking it away and starting again with self soothing?

Whilst I think she is an efficient feeder (she's always taken ~5mins per side), she's now only staying on for about 1 minute, max 2min, during the day and then screams at me and refuses to latch, so I'm not sure she is getting enough at each feed - I feel like she's snacking and then getting frustrated at me for not listening to her.

She could just be an efficient feeder, my DS2 only fed for a couple of minutes and was done, which was in stark contrast to his brother who'd feed for 40+ long as she's giving you plenty of wet nappies and happy I'd listen to her communication... Books and websites do have a great way of making us think we have to do it xyz way and really it's not going to change her life which ever way you go.
E.A.S.Y. Forum / 3.5hr EASY at 13 weeks?
« Last post by Hoofbeat on August 28, 2019, 12:05:28 pm »
My DD is 13weeks tomorrow and had been on a 3hr EASY (she is exclusively breastfed). We're in the middle of Leap 3 so her naps have been a bit off, although today they are better (slept 1.5hrs first thing, and is currently nearly an hour into second nap)

The last couple of weeks she has been incredibly fussy to feed during the day - she will take a very small feed, then scream at me and refuse to latch. As soon as I remove her from the breast she's happy as anything. My DS had silent reflux, but I don't think she's displaying the signs for that - she's happy lying on her back soon after a feed and she's such a happy baby as long as I'm not trying to feed her! There is absolutely nothing wrong with my supply. I've tried doing breast compressions and not doing them, and also tried different positions.

I'm seeing a lactation expert on Friday to check there is nothing wrong with my technique, but I'm beginning to wonder if really she's just not hungry after 3hours and that it might be better extending it to 3.5hrs. Is she too young for that? The one thing that's making me hesitate is that she was on the 40th percentile but dropped to the 23rd percentile and seems to be sitting around that now - the health visitors weren't concerned and said that might just be where she's supposed to be. It's making me cautious though as I don't want her to not be getting enough milk by infrequent feeds, but at the moment I feel like every 3 hours she just isn't taking much at all.

Thanks for all your help

I offered my DS1 the occasional formula feed from around 3mo and I'm pretty sure I just used the recommendations on the formula and followed my DS1s lead as to if he finished it or not.
Generally speaking if they are getting enough they stop feeding and will leave a bit in the bottle.
Formula takes longer to digest than BM so you may get longer between feeds,but despite what books lead us to believe, there isn't a one size fits all and it's mostly part of the lifelong parenting journey, that you need to make the best decision you can at the time using the information that you know about your child. What works perfectly for one child can be  disastrous for another, so it's important to be looking to what the needs of your child specifically rather than thinking what is 'right' because in the 1960s 'right' was canned milk with sugar added...which now has us all horrified.

So I tried to skip the first feed and it resulted in an hour cry. Then I just fed him. It is all too much for me. I really am clueless about what to do.
