For nearly a week now Nate's been waking every 3 hours in the night, turning mummy here into a walking zombie. We reckon he's probabably going through a growth spurt as well and so wanting to wake up to nurse. But surely a 4.5 month old baby doesn't need to feed every 3 hours in the night?!! It doesn't help that he's awake and wanting to play at 4am when both our brains are barely functioning.
Last night we tried to "dream feed" - waking him to nurse - just before we went to bed but that only gave us an extra hour of rest - he woke up 4 hrs later instead of his usual 3 hrs! Poor daddy who has been quite ill has been made even more exhausted by our little guy! While I'm, well, as alert and energetic as any sleep-deprived mum can be.
