My preemie is now 3 mos old. He eats and sleeps almost all the time. He eats 4 oz every 2-3 hours around the clock, But my thing is from around 7-2 at night he's ASLEEP... It just dawned on me, "Is it me not waking up for him in between to feed him???" I have 2 older boys, (age 4 and 6) and I'm completely exhausted... Do preemie babies at 3 mos old start to have long stretches of sleep? IDK
Phew makes me feel better. I was about to set my alarm to actually wake him up!
So i didnt feel like I was sleeping through it!
I havent had a preemie in 4 yrs so its all fresh to me again! lol
Quoting Sami&Baby Silas:" I have never woke my son to feed. His doctor actually recommended not waking him to feed. My 3 month ... [snip!] ... old son sleeps 8-9 hours at night(and has since he was 5 weeks old) so he eats more during the day. It evens out in the end."
How much did you give your son at 5 weeks? Im wondering if feeding my daughter more during the day if she'll sleep for longer stretches..cuz she does not sleep lol
