My 5 week old wakes up at night just about every two hours or less to feed. Feeding takes maybe 20 minutes (that's to breast and bottle--he loves his food and dr says to do what he wants.) At that point he is half awake so I rock/hold him to get him to sleep, but end up having to do this for over 30 minutes most of the times because he pops his eyes open as soon as I lay him in his crib of he is not completely asleep. So basically I lose an extra hour of much needed sleep just trying to make sure he is asleep so he doesn't wake and scream. Is this normal? Does everyone do this? Is there another way??
