    This. The last 2 nights has been a shocker with my bub stirring every couple of cycles. Bub only needed feeding once the other times I popped my hand on him, shushed and he drifted back off to sleep without fully waking/cracking up. I had no idea why he had started doing this and then realised the last 2 nights bub had woken during the dreamfeed (an expressed bottle of milk given by daddy). And had fallen asleep again with the bottle in his mouth. This creating the negative sleep association that Holly detailed.

    Stuff putting up with multiple wakings. Bub sleeping through IMO is a healthy and obtainable goal. I am going to talk to hubby about pulling the pin on the dreamfeed before this problem escalates....

    Yeah, if DS falls asleep while feeding I'm guaranteed that he'll wake an hour later, usually really upset, and need to be nursed again. I usually make sure he's not overtired for his bedtime feed just to ensure he doesn't fall asleep during because if he does he doesn't feed properly and not only do we end up with him waking an hour later but our whole night is messed up with more wakings than normal. A late afternoon catnap is my fix!

    That all said, I do love when he falls asleep feeding. So snugly and sweet. I forget it will be a pain for me later.
