Every two hours

Cletus was always a good sleeper. At just over a week old, he would go four, five or sometimes up to six hours at a stretch. At just over six weeks old, he was "sleeping through", going down somewhere between 8:30 and 10 pm, and waking up somewhere between 5:30 am (on a bad night) all the way up to 7 on a rare lucky morning.

Wow! I praised my lucky stars. I believed I might have stumbled on some kind of slacker method of baby control.

Of course, on the downside, Cletus was a skinny little fellow and a slow gainer.

Well, lately he seems to be chubbing up and growing and now he's waking every two hours through the night - ravenous. I'm tired.

Now you understand what I went through for almost a year for you and almost two years for your brother. I sympathize and wish that this would not happen to you.
At least you do not have to get up and go somewhere in the mornings.

Ooh, sorry to hear that. And if Cletus were mine, he'd be doing this just as I'd gone back to work. Let's hope little Z doesn't follow his example.
