If so, you could go in, get bub up, and offer breast a bit before your normal night time feed, sleepy hungry bub will most likely latch on and feed, try expressing a tiny bit first, might help.
    I'll give this all a go. He doesn't normally feed but as he's been sick he has been. Thank you so much for the ideas and the hope.

    I was also going to suggest a dream feed. When DD1 went on a nursing strike at 3-4 months (I lost weight too quickly) the only way I could feed her was via a dream feed. Apparently babies are more likely to take to breast in a sleepy state. Good luck with it!

    Oh I gave her a dream feed for every feed, day and night. So if she was due to feed (roughly) at 3pm I'd pick her up still asleep at say 2.45pm and feed her. Worked every time. She would then wake up after her feed, boob in mouth and in my arms with a huge grin on my face!

    So cute! Thank you. I'll try this tonight. I'm glad my boy is not the only one to do this.

    A big relief. I'm pretty sure I would have given up if it wasn't for you ladies. I just hope he remembers how to do it in the morning!!!

    So glad he's feeding for you

    My DD went through a similar strike and I had to work so hard pumping, my supply dropped though and I needed a course of motilium to get my supply back.

    The good news is it was all worth it - she's still feeding at 2
