Well I was the Mother of a 45 min napper! Ever since we got back from traveling over xmas he now naps 1.5-2.5hrs. yah!! But of course a new problem arises. He was sleeping through the night when he 45min napped. Now he naps well and is waking at night. around 2, 4am. He also does'nt want to follow his 3hr routine...he can go way longer. So I am feeding every 3 and half hours. his 11;30 feeding not interested and I know the reason he is probably waking at night is he needs his calories from the day..right?!

How do I get him to sleep through without feed and to get him to eat during the day on the new 3.5 routine? He is 16 weeks old. Only BF. What do I do first?

I think you are right on.  More calories during the day.  My DS switched to a 4 hour routine at about that age.  My DS wouldn't automatically demand more milk so I had to get my supply up before he would start taking more.  I did that by pumping during or right after I fed him.
