Hi looking for some words of wisdom and advice. As the title says my little one is five weeks old and wakes for a feed every two hours at night, I was happy with this he takes about two or three ounces and goes back down. He does go usually three hours in the day. Now my well meaning family are telling me to stretch his feeds out at night so he starts sleeping longer - meaning I have a baby who wants a feed but I should make him wait longer in the middle of the night. Now I don’t know what to do for the best. Am I doing the wrong thing feeding him when he wakes at night? Is this too small a gap between feeds? He’s still basically a newborn and I expected him to wake at this interval anyway!
Sorry for the ramble I’m tired and confused!
