We have interesting situation going on with Will.  For the last couple of days, he has been completely off.  It use to be that he would have around 4 oz of breastmilk about every 2 – 3 hours.  The last two days he eats an ounce or two (or three sometimes!) then falls asleep.  This goes on all day.  He actually has been eating more because of this.

I know you are saying well then make him eat the whole bottle.  Wake him up.  I can't do that though.  He has baby reflux, so I end up wearing it if we overfeed him (I end up wearing it even when he isn't overfed).  I have just let him do this thing, but I was wondering if anyone had some insight into this.

  1. love the new layout, as for the baby problem, at his age, I think you are doing the right thing, just let him make his own schedule for a while, reflux is no fun, it might feel better for him to only eat a little each time, but I know it is hard on you 🙁 Maybe ask the Doc next visit if he should be on a diff formula. Good luck!

  2. It's breastmilk, so it isn't like I can change it. LOL Unless we put him on formula.

    It is just really hard to get anything done. I am dying for a shower right now, but he doesn't stay sleeping long enough!

  3. This too shall pass, believe me. 🙂 One thing a nurse told me waaaay back when my first child was born is that a baby will never starve him/herself, and if they fall asleep, let them sleep. His inner clock will eventually regulate itself. Until then, I'm afraid showers are at a premium. It won't last that long, though. In fact, as sleep-deprived as you are, try to cherish every moment, as it all goes by so fast!

  4. I figure as long as he is eating we should be fine. It is just frustrating to a point. However, maybe this has something to do with his reflux. maybe not. That's the tough thing about kids. They can't tell you.

  5. New reader (through Electric Venom)…

    Sounds like a growth spurt in the making. If he's taking in more overall, he's just adjusting to the need for more food with his reflux. They're small but pretty savvy. 🙂 Unfortunately with four smarties of my own – I'm in trouble.

    Great blog. I'll be back.
