Connor is 4 weeks old and doing very well. He sleeps well, eats well... poops well, lol. But me, I'm the one having troubles. I can't fall back asleep after the 2 AM feeding... So I am getting like 3-4 hours of sleep per night and that's it. It's driving me insane, especially since he is such a good sleeper etc...
Is it bad of me to change his feeding schedule so that I will be able to sleep through the night? I have never let him go longer than 5 hours before, but with this new schedule he will be having a feeding at 11:30 and then we would let him go until he woke up, which would probably be about 5:00-5:30.
My friend says it's ok to go that long - especially since I will be giving him more at the other feedings to make up for going from 7 feedings per day to 6... what do you all think?
