    It doesn't sound like too little but you could try offering more and seeing if he takes it. Or perhaps start adding a bit of protein for dinner. What time do you do the last feed of the night and what time is bed time? Do you do a dream feed?

    Don't worry about what books say, is you're happy to do the night feeds, and it sounds like bub needs it, keep doing it until it is a problem for you. If and when it does try and slowly wean by giving shorter feeds each time, so bub gets used to having less gradually.

    Hi!

    The last feed is around 6pm. Bedtime is usually at 7pm. I haven't started giving her chicken or meat yet. So she usually has cooked veggies for dinner. And yes, I do dream feed as well. She still wakes up 3 times after that.

    She is a big girl. 9.5kg at 7 months.

    I just don't know if DD wakes up because she is hungry or not.
    i do baby led solids (BLS) with my kids, so the amounts change and i don't really measure or take note that much. I just offer bits of whatever we are having until he says he has enough.

    You could offer more at meals or as snacks and see if your daughter is interested in more. She might like some meat to gum or chew too (if your family eats meat). Pasta is another fave here, chunky spirals are good for baby to grab and suck and chew too.

    It sounds like she has a healthy appetite, and is just waking because she is genuinely hungry.

    I do think some protein might help as you are feeding her close to bed time and her meals could maybe be a bit bigger.

    All just a guess though!

    Let us know how you go!

    Thank you, CuddlesAwait!

    I will try to give her some protein and more food in general if she wants to. Hopefully this will make a difference.

    For the last two nights she started doing something new, but I need a whole new thread for that, lol..

    Haha, happy to help there too if we can!

    My DD has started waking for 3 feeds a night now! not so happy with that though! 2 I can cope with, but three and the resulting leaky nappy, not a happy mummy!

    3 night feeds is normal for us. But I know, its so hard when babies start going "backwards".

    Which nappies do you use? I use huggies and never had any leakage problems.
