    My DS2 is still waking 2 turns per night. Time to cut the never successful dreamfeed. Or perhaps I should just feed him?

    I've never attempted a dream feed as I'm terrified of touching a sleeping baby! Goes against all my instincts.

    I tried dream feed with ds1 and it never made any difference to his sleep. Ds2 didn't need it so never tried, and now he wakes at 10 anyway

    I'm convinced he's not waking due to being hungry. He's struggling with solids (rice cereal and breast milk) and gags etc and takes ages to eat 1 tiny teaspoon of it.

    He also cannot sit unsupported, I've been feeding him in his bouncer but he's so big for it that he weighs it down and is basically lying down!!

    Hes 5 months now and still hates tummy time his head is so big and heavy he cannot hold it up for more than 2/3 minutes during tummy time

    He is also not rolling

    Can you do tummy time with him sort of inclined on a cushion or a rolled up towel under his chest? Or with his favourite toys where he has to hold his head up a bit to look at them?

    I wouldn't stress about him not rolling yet, though you can incorporate some cross body reaching or semi turning with his hips during play and songs to give him a bit of an idea.

    Is there a trick to the dream feed? I've tried it with both boys but they just end up full of wind.

    Oh actually he does sometimes roll into his sides but mainly during feeding (I lie down to feed him) or occasionally if he's playing.

    Never onto tummy though. Also I have tried the towel under chest but he still hates it and he will hang his head and struggle to lift if after a few mins. He looks at his toys but doesn't try and get them

    Sagirl, my DS is only rolling front to back sometimes. He's attempting the other way. He's definitely not sitting unsupported and sometimes his head flops.

    I'm only just waking up so can't do a proper update yet but thought I'd repost this article for you to read. Totally your choice but completely put me off starting solids early.

    Re: dream feeds. They can sometimes encourage a baby to wake more, definitely did with my DS so they're really just baby dependent.

    I'll come back later, have to feed the baby!
