    Default Max amount 6-8m old has in last bedtime bottle?

    Ds drinks approx 100-170ml during the day, however he drinks 240-270ml at night. Sometimes he is still sucking on the teat once the bottle is finished! I'm wondering if I should make up more or if that's heaps for a last feed. He is on 3 small/med meals (not a great eater) and does have a bottle during the night.
    Opinions please!

    I think my son has 300mls before bed.

    Is he still sucking because he is hungry or just because its there?

    Thanks bextar. Do you actually put 300ml water then add formula? My bottles aren't big enough!
    I think hungry, as a few weeks ago he would pretty much stop or slow down towards the end (usually half asleep)

    300 mls, I wish! DD is lucky to take 100ml before bed, usually only 50... she is a big eater though. We always offer 200ml and she takes as much as she wants. If he seems like he wants more and your bottles aren't big enough, perhaps have another 100ml or so ready in a second bottle?

    My DS has 200ml before bed. And sometimes still wakes for a 100ml during the night (I think this might be habit - not sure....)

    If I were you I would try to up it and see what happens - it might stop him waking for a night feed too...

    I'm interested to hear...

    DS did that at that age too, i'd do a 200ml bottle of formula then an extra 100 as he demanded it, if i did a 250ml bottle then he still wanted more. this went on for a number of months. at once stage he hit a growth spurt at 10 months and demanded like 350-380mls before finally going to sleep, this only happen for a week or 2 though
