Reverse Cycling

Postby 27jillfinallypreggo » Wed May 02, 2012 8:52 pm

I think DS is reverse cycling. He doesn't eat much for DH during the day 8-10 ounces where previously it was about 16 ounces. He isn't doing many solids (none today) and wants to eat all night which is fine since we cosleep. But, I am curious if how long this could last. Has this happened to anyone else?

Hey! Yes, this happened to my DS and I. He would drink maybe 6 to 8 ounces of milk during the day, while I was at work. We co-slept, also, so it wasn't a major concern for me because I knew he was making up for the lost calories by nursing frequently at night. He reverse-cycled pretty much until he was eating a lot of solid food during the day, which was around a year old. Once he began sleeping longer stretches at night, we moved him into his crib when he was 13 months old. After we moved him into his crib, he would get up maybe once per night for a while. Now, at 16 months, he is sleeping through the night and we are down to two feedings per day :)

thanks, that made me feel better. i am cool with cosleeping until about 12/13/14 months and then I want my bed back to me and DH, ha!!

DD didn't reverse cycle but she did cosleep until about 13 months so I was worried this would be worse.
