I'm sure my bub doesn't need as much sleep as what all the books (e.g. sleep right, sleep tight) say. He has 1 to 2 naps a day, usually either two 1hr ones, or lately 1 1-1.5hr nap and a 20min catnap at around 4:30pm. He's waking heaps at night though, and I keep trying to encourage the morning nap at about 10am, but sometimes he just refuses, then after an early lunch goes down easily at about 12pm.
Is his night waking due to too much sleep (worse with long am nap (1.25hr) and shorter pm nap (40min-1hr), or not enough. I've tried to figure it out.
I don't really want to do CC again, but I think I may have to. He can be so inconsistent, even though we have a pretty good routine, and I put him down at about 7pm-7:15pm.
All I think about is how much sleep, what will he do tonight. I should be strong and not feed him during the night - he's not really hungry most of the time.
i don't know what to do anymore, everytime I start to work him out, he changes. Everytime I almost eliminate his night feeding and waking, he starts up again.
I need some encourement and advice, anyone do CC to stop night feeds/waking and still b/F an 11m.o? What if my supply drops? I've always pretty much demand fed him.
