Hi there, I'm trying to stay calm, but getting more desperate daily! I've had approx 2hrs sleep/24hrs for over 2 weeks, but have reached a plateau and don't really feel that bad so none of this is coming from my need for more sleep - yet! DS is now 16 days old. He weighed 11lbs 2.5oz at birth!!! He feeds CONSTANTLY. At first the midwives and friends told me it was normal for them to feed a lot during the early days. I've also heard from 2 midwives that the hormone levels are highest between midnight and 4am so milk production is best and therefore feeding to be expected between those hours. Fair enough. He usually (not always) sleeps for 3hrs at some point between 7pm and midnight, 2hrs somewhere between 7am and 11am, and 2 hrs between noon and 6pm. At all other times he is feeding constantly. When I feed him he will fall asleep after 20 mins, wake during winding, feed again for 20 mins, fall asleep, wake within 10 mins or when try to put down in moses basket. After 1hr, or when breast empty will swap to other side and start process again. I'm being pretty patient thinking he's a big boy (11,2.5 remember!) and hungry. But is this really normal? I'm beginning to worry about his lack of sleep, never mind my own. I was wondering whether he just needs to suck for comfort to go to sleep as he'd hardly gone down in his moses basket in 48hrs. and as much as I'm loathed to, i gave him a dummy this afternoon. He's happy sucking it but hasn't slept much. We've had 2 x 45 minute feeds and he's just dozed in between. WHAT SHOULD I DO???
