Hi guys<br />
My little princess is now 11 weeks old. She is now taking 150ml formula per feed. She usually feeds. 6.30am, 10.30am, 2.30am and 6.00pm and goes to bed by 7pm.<br />
For the last couple of weeks i was dream feeding at around 10pm. Some nights she would then last until 5.30/am, others waking at 2am for a feed (would give a small top up only)<br />
The last 5 nights we hve not done the dream feed and she lasted until 2/2.30am each time then feeds and goes back to sleep until 6.30am.<br />
So to dream feed or not? Is it better for her to go 10pm-5.30am with a possible 2am top up?<br />
Or is it better to go 6.30pm-2am?<br />
Which is easier to wean her into a full night???<br />
Hope this Makes sense!!!<br />
Thanks in advance

I'm in a very similar predicament with my 14 week old DS so I'm subbing because I don't know which is best either!!

It is hard to know what is right or wrong as every child is different. I have 2 DS my oldest nearly 6 and my bubba almost 3. I did the dream feeding with my youngest as like you he had regular 4 hourly feeds through the day, at 10pm I'd give a dream feed and then he'd also sleep through till 5/5.30am. If it were me I'd stick to the 10pm feed as your bubs is having regular feeds during the day, I think 6.30 till 2/2.30 is quite long. DS will only drink what she needs anyway. Only do what is best for you & Bubs she'll learn soon enough she is still little as well. I hope my opinion helps otherwise your doing really well

I agree, keep going with the 10pm feed. My bub was very similar and when I upped her to 180ml, she started started sleeping longer so I'd say your bub will sleep longer once you go up to that next amount. Now at 5 mths my bub has skipped that last feed and sleeps 8pm till around 7-7:30am.
