Ok so most parents may not see this as a dilemma, but a blessing... ha not me! Kayla sleeps too late in the a.m. We put her to bed just after her 7:30 p.m. feeding. We then "wake" her up at 10:30-11 p.m. to feed her one more time. And I say "wake" bc she doesn't really wake up- she just goes through the motions. Around 7 a.m. she wakes up... quietly- so I don't wake just as she does. She is a great sleeper and a great morning baby. However, if she wakes up that late, it is very difficult to get the amount of ounces in a day that she needs into her. Which is also the reason we do the 10:30-11 p.m. feed... bc I'm still trying to get her 25 oz in. So I was thinking we'd cut out the late night feed in hopes she'd eat more during the day- but how do I do that? What if she doesn't eat more during the day and she doesn't get the 25 in..
For example, she has 20 oz in her right now- she will need to take 5 oz at 10:30... which I doubt she'll do, she usually takes 4 oz and quits. 24 I can deal with, but 20... eh. But if I don't do this late feed, she'll wake up at like 4 a.m.... (maybe!) does that count towards the day before, or is that the start of her day then?! haha I'm so confused on what to do!
How do you get the oz in your baby?
Also- when you hold your little cutie- do you ever feel crackling on his/her side? I feel it often on K and I am VERY nervous about that!!!!!! I mean is it gas- she has been farting, and stinky too, or is it her stomach that is gurgling- they sound way different though. I don't know- does it mean her patch isn't in place... I have no clue as she is my first baby and have no clue if babies just do that?! ahhhhh!!
