dreamfeed

Hi all
I'm wondering whether or not to drop A's dreamfeed - he normally has 6oz per bottle, sometimes 7oz, very rarely he drains an 8oz bottle.
He has a bottle at roughly 7am, 10am, 2pm, 5pm and 7pm, we then dreamfeed him when we go to bed at 10pm
He sleeps so soundly at 10pm that I hate waking him - he's then quite restless all night and has disturbed sleep?
Do you think I should drop the dreamfeed as i think I am waking him mid sleep cycle. He does drink at least 5oz during this feed though ?(

Thanks in advance

Caz xx

Have to say I never woke Gregor to feed him during the night -- if he slept ... I slept :happy: - you may find his routine changes slightly but I'd say its worth a go .. especially if he's doesn't have a settled sleep after his dream feed .. and you may also find that he does start to drain his 8oz bottles

Just my opinion

It never worked for us either, the few times I tried it, she just seemed to wet her nappy more and woke earlier as a result! Thinking back, it may have coincided with her wearign cloth nappies at night. Its worth a try though, I always like the idea in theory, and maybe it would've worked for us if I'd persevered.

He was awake when we went up last night so took the oppurtunity to feed him. He was still ion bed with us at 5am though - he's going through a stage of losing hs dummy nad waking for it, we put it in, h falls asleep, dummy comes out and hey ho the cycle starts again.
We are shattered !!!
My Dh has been looking into stuff ont he net and think he's leaning towards A going in his own room :bawl: :bawl:

Why don't you try it for just one night?

Make him move everything into A's room (and back again), and see if he sleeps better ... you'll probably find you do too ...

If you feel that strongly about it (and no, you're not a weirdo) ... then you're not ready ..

Any particular reason why hubby wants A in his own room?

Monkey business Kirst...monkey business :O :innocent:

No seriously, he's not getting a good night sleep with A, he's no problem when he was sleeping thru with no wake-ups

Caz xx ( although I'm sure the monkey business has something to do with it )

We dropped the dreamfeed last night and A slept through - woke at 7am as normal

What a clever boy
Am hoping he tanks the 5 bottles he gets now, his 10.30 bottle though - just 4 oz??
