I am just wondering if anyone on here has tried novolac sweet dreams for hungry babies? My little man is 15 weeks next week and he is still feeding every 2 hours. He had been doing 5-6 hour stretches at night, but for the last 3-4 weeks he has been waking every 2-3 hours for a feed. During the day he wont last 3 hours before he is feeding again. He was breastfed up until 6-7 weeks, then switched to formula as my milk was not satisfying him + i got a very mastitis.
I would love to hear anyones experience with this novolac for hungry babies as i am pulling my hair out with the very frequent feeding!
Thankyou in advance. x

I haven't tried it because I've heard that its too think for babies bellies but I just wanted to tell you that it's normal for them to be feeding that frequently.
What I used to do with DS was, every time I heard him grizzle at night, I'd give him a dummy so I could put him off feeding for half an to an hour. I started doing this when he was 4 months old. He eventually went longer and longer in between feeds.
I started the dream feeds when he was about 5.5 months old and he dropped those by the time he was 6 months old and started sleeping through.
He is now 10 months old and sleeps 7pm-8am without any feeds.

I've not tried the formula, sorry. This is totally normal feeding every 3 hours. Have you tried increasing to 210ml or even 240ml? Maybe try the feed before bed to start with and see if this helps to increase the time between feeds.
