So my 8 month old DS is STILL having 3 feeds during the night. He has never really been an awesome sleeper, the most he will sleep is 7 and half hours straight - but has only done that a few times. For the last 3 weeks he has been having 3 and sometimes 4 bottles. Either all 200ml or 150ml each time. I am wondering if this is just out of habit? Do they night wean themselves? A few of my friends with babies all say their baby sleeps through the night so im kind of feeling my baby isnt the norm... ?? I don't know what else i can do to encourage him to sleep more at night and drop a feed or two. I honestly don't think he geniunely needs 3-4 bottles just at night! He is having 3 solid meals a day, and generally has 4 bottles a day, 4 hourly, 150ml. I am wondering if i should drag it out maybe to 4 and half hourly in hope he might take 200ml??? I have tried doing 4 hourly at 200ml but he will only drink 150ml.
Im not sure what else to do. Its super tiring having to get up 3-4 times a night for feeds plus another 4 times for when his dummy falls out or he cant find it himself.
Does anyone have any advice or tips for me??
