Shorter time Between feedings
« on: May 19, 2017, 16:59:48 pm »
We've really had a rough first 3 months. My baby has had issues with reflux and it has been impossible to put her down. She has always eaten every hour. We just had her tongue tie and lip tie revised a week ago. She's doing much better and has gone to feeding every hour and a half. She's just over 3 months. Is it going to be possible to do this with her feeding so often, or should I wait until she goes to 2 or 3 hours between feedings? What we have been doing is eat, play, eat, sleep. Of course she's nursing to sleep, and I usually hold her. Sometimes I can transfer her with the boppy pillow to the couch and let her sleep while I fold laundry. Also, we have mostly been co sleeping at night and for some naps,  since we weren't getting any sleep any other way. I appreciate any suggestions.

Hi there and welcome to BW forums.

It is possible to start routines and gentle sleep training at any time.
You can certainly begin to wean the feeding to sleep prop right away and then begin to sleep train in the cot regardless of how frequently your LO is feeding.
It really depends on what you are ready to begin working on/towards.
