squished - October 4

Our lo has never slept through the night as the 3 hour NICU feeding schedule has hung around, but a couple of weeks ago he was sleeping for two 5 hour stretches at night and I was finally going YEAH!!! Now, he's awake all night!! How do you know if he's waking to eat out of habit? Or is this the infamous 3-4 month waking thing everyone was talking about?

I have the crazy non sleeping 7 week old! lol! I don't really have a solution for you but I am right there with you! I can say at 4 months both of my son's were waking once to eat and then were back to sleep until morning. I think at 5 months they could really be waking from hunger, but should be able to get by with one feeding. Have you started solids yet? That should help once you do. If you haven't given him solids yet, this may be a sign he is ready for more food. Could also just be a growth spurt.

If its habit he will only be drinking a couple of oz's at each wake up & each wake-up is at around the same time every night. I could set my clock to my ds's nightly wake-ups. If it is true hunger they will act ravished and drink a lot at each feeding and the time that they wake up every night will be different and sporadic. Hunger shouldn't go by the clock. He could be going through a growth spurt right now as he is at the right age for one. A growth spurt and last anywhere from 4-7 days. GL.
