starting our day
« on: February 12, 2015, 03:06:15 am »
Ds is 6 weeks old and on a 3 hour easy.I have 2.5 weeks left of maternity leave so I'm trying to star our wake tine and bedtime what it'll have to be when I go back to work. I'll have to wake him and feed him at 6am. The problem is, currently he's waking about  4:45 hungry. Any suggestions?

(currently, last feed is 530-6 bedtime is 6-6:30, DF 930-10. He'll wake up for a NF between 12&130, then around 430-5.)

Yes, feed him at 4.45am when he's hungry :). And let him go back to sleep again until you need to start your day, then offer a top-up.  The nights look really good for his age, not sure really what else you could do right now as babies tummies are very small and he will only be able to go a short time without milk.  Things could be very different in 2-3 weeks so just try to follow his cues for now and feed him when he's hungry.
