    i find leandro was feeding less as in every 3-4 hours instead of 2 but drinking the whole 5oz. also hes back to his normal sleeping habit of sleeping throughout the day then not much at night. annoying when we thought we hit the nail on the head :-( xxx

    Phoebe is 7 weeks today so we've just passed that stage. I didnt notice her feeding more but she has been very sleepy. Trouble is she won't actually sleep and keeps fighting it so she gets over tired and grizzly :/ x x

    Jake normally drinks more and sleeps more at night. When he was newborn if he was having a growth spurt he would sleep a lot longer at night. It would only last a few days before he went back to feeding every 4 hours or so.

    Kayden's growth spurts only lasted like 2 days. He would just be fussing all day about nothing, screaming & gulping his bottle like a madman then stopping & starting, kinda just fed on demand. Found the cartons of formula were good for those stages coz there's always some available.
