DS is 9 months and has been up ever 2 hrs to nurse since birth. Recently he's nursing 5-6 times a night now. He usually nurses between 3-6 times during the day, though some of those nursing are really short, like 5 min tops (very distracted). Even if he nurses more during the day (6 times instead of say 3) it doesn't change the frequency of the feeds at night. Dream feed before i go to bed changes nothing.

What do you think? It's not teething, i know that much. Reverse cycle? Emerging skills? Sleep regression? Sometimes he just wants t be held, but that's pretty rare, he's usually hungry/wants to nurse. I'm getting tired of waking up every hr after i go to bed and every hr to 2 hrs after that!

Also forgot to mention that co-sleeping is not an option. Also for some reason now i can't sleep at all if he's nursing, usually he comes into the bed at 6am and then i sleep for 2 hrs but now i can't sleep!

Thanks for reading and sorry if this makes not too much sense i've already been up 4 times since i went to bed at 11. @_@

Re: Reverse cycling? How often does your 9 mo. LO nurse during day/night?

Could definitely be all the reasons you stated. My DS did that at 9 mths then at 12 mths then again at 16 and 18 mths. Hang in there. I believe that babies need the night nutrition especially for the brain growth and development as well as their physical growth. It's hard!
