I see a pattern

S3 is beginning to show a pattern. Since we've been home, we've been tracking every feeding (time and duration) and diaper change (stool, urine, both). If you had told me I was going to be interested in this stuff, I wouldn't have believed you.

We're finding that he has a two-three hour period in the evening (between 11PM and 3AM) when he is almost inconsolable. We're trying to move that period to the daytime when we have more energy to deal with it. We decided to feed him every three hours no matter what. This should move his long sleep times from the day to the night and thus move the inconsolable period to the daytime or eliminate it all together. We'll let you know how our plan works.

I would imagine it could take three days or more of this before we'll know if it worked.
