Greeting guys where has the last 3months gone? Cassie is now 3 months and 8 days old. We are doing morning (7am) and night (7pm) feeds of me for approx 80min; then 2 other feeds. How can I try to get her to get a 5th in there. Below is a pic of her with her Dad a month ago now.

Aww. She is sooooo gorgeous hun Love

Wow does she sleep 7am to 7pm? That's fantastic! Jake was still having a 12am feed at that age. Which made his feeds to 5. If she is sleeping that long and isn't asking for more food and is having lots of wet and dirty nappies then i would just carry on as you are hun and not worry about getting her to 5 feeds? She is obviously doing great! Hug

Thanks just get worried that i am not doing things right Whistling . She starts the last feed at 7 and finishes around 8.30ish but she has been falling asleep on the boob. In a months time we are leaving her with my folks for 2 nights as we have a wedding to go to, and I have been reading that letting her do this isn't good she won't get of to sleep without me. So tonight I treied stirring her but it didn't work Naughty she just styed Sleep

Aww hun. A month in the life of a baby is a huge amount of time and it is amazing the differences she will be showing already by then! I'm sure your mum and dad will cope with her hun, they will relish being able to spoil their gorgeous granddaughter, even if it meant they were up with her all night (although i am sure they won't be!) If it is possible to put Cassie down awake afer her feed then it is better in the long run to help her be able to settle herself to sleep. But try not to stress over it too much. It certainly won't hurt her to be left with your parents! Just take any changes you try and make one step at a time hun! You are doing a great job! Hug Xx
