Night time feeds

Postby Littleryan » Mon Jun 01, 2015 4:04 am

Hi I was wondering if anyone can help me. My baby is just 3months old and is starting to sleep longer during the night. A few times she has falling asleep at 7.30pm and not woke till 4am for bottle. So we decided to try give her a later bottle and hopefully she sleeps longer. But it seems no matter what time she goes down at she still seem to wake at 4am for a bottle. I dont really want to let her cry it out cause we share a house with others.I have also tryed extra hungry milk just at night but that seems to cause bad trapped wind. Anyone got any other solutions? Thanks

Hi littleryan :) it starts to get bright about 4 so just wondering would this be waking your lo up? If it is, maybe you could try a black out blind?

When you say you tried a later feed did you try a dream feed? I know it's hard going but a 3 month old sleeping from 7.30-4am is really good.

Thanks for the replies. By later feed I mean waking her up after her 7.30pm bottle close to her when her next bottle due. What is dream feed don't think I have heard that?
Thanks

A dream feed us when you lift them from their sleep between 10-11pm not any later & try your best bit to wake them. Give the feed & put them back down, usually there's no need to wind them coz they're so relaxed taking the feed that there's very little/no wind. It worked really well for us when our lo was smaller.

Honestly, there are no solutions! At only three months old she is actually doing great, technically she is sleeping through! As much as a relative newborn will! Mine is 4.5 months old and still wakes at least once for a small feed. It's more the norm then the exception.

We were the same here until about 5.5 months our lo woke for a small feed during the night. Before you know it your lo won't wake for those feeds & you'll miss those little cuddles :-)

My lo is a year old and has been waking at night the past 3months.trust me 7.30-4 is good.a baby waking at that age is necessary for growth, development and safety

Try a dreamfeed Littleryan. Like tipper said u lift them between 10/11pm. Do not wake them. Give the feed and straight back down. Did it with both sons. They dont need winding as they dont gulp it when drinking in their sleep. 7.30pm to 4am is a great stretch tho. Best of luck :-)
