I don't blame you on the DF - I'd probably work on weaning the 4-5am feeding instead of trying to force the DF since she doesn't want it. You could probably do the same thing for that feed - set your alarm for 30min earlier and take down the # of oz ever three days and get the same results - no night feeding, and sleeping through the night. I hope that goes well for you!
Glad you are enjoying the cheering. I may need a bit of my own. DD was at the ER last night with a 104.4F fever=40.22C.
We have fever reducers and antibiotics now, so hopefully she is on the mend. She is sleeping really well so far, except for me having to wake her to give the fever reducers. We may have to do some night time weaning/NW intervention ourselves before it is all said and done, but I hope not.
Keep up the good work ladies! I hope we all get some good night's sleep very soon!!!
