    Default Sleeping routine

    Hi there
    I'm just wanting some general advice. So my 5 month old will have a dreamfeed, usually 10pm which is a formula bottle, every other feed is breast. But she will then wake a 2/3am and then again 5.30/6 go back to sleep and wake at 7/8am. Is this normal and an ok routine to be in. Of course it's for whatever works for the person with routines but wondering should I be trying to drop one of those feeds at her age or what? Very confusing. Thanks so much

    Until bub is established on solids (3 meals per day, including protein) don't try and drop night feeds. By all means try and pat bub and see if bub resettles, but if bub doesn't settle easily without a feed, then feed.

    I don't see anything wrong with that routine at all. I would let bub lead you and they will sleep through when they are ready to drop a feed.

    My DS2 is 4 months and does something very similar to that (after 2 other babies, I am very happy with this!) If you're coping with the night wakings I wouldn't do anything different.

    My DS2 is 6 months (4months corrected) and does exactly the same! He is small so we feed every 3/4 hours so the waking during the night is ok. Though my other DS1 who is 6 was sleeping through by now so it's a bit of a culture shock. I am glad we aren't the only ones whose child wakes every couple of hours during the night.

    I have a 4 month old and I don't worry about night time wake ups. I remind myself of how small her stomach is and after 3 hours it's probably empty which is why she wakes for a feed.
