I have recently moved my LO onto 4 hourly feeding. She is 11weeks, has recently been confirmed as having reflux so on anti-reflux milk and at her last weigh in earlier this week was 10lb 3oz. Before moving onto 4hrly feeding she was taking 5oz every 3 hours. I initially went to 6oz every 4 hours but the total in the day was equivalent to 5oz 3hrly. I spoke to the HV who said it would make sense to offer 7oz 4 hourly so this is what we are taking now.
Prior to these changes my little one was finishing dream feeds at 11pm and waking at 6am to 6.30am but has now decided to not finish dream feeds (so sleepy its a struggle to get her to drink full amount) and is waking closer to 5am (which I know is great). I usually try and make bedtime 7pm but when she wakes at this time I'm really confused by what to do as when counting 4houtly we end up at 5pm and then 9pm.
Can anyone share what they would normally do? I.e. Would you treat 9pm as bedtime? I also wondered if I'd moved onto 4hourly too soon?
Any advice greatly appreciated!!
