    I really don't se point of dream feeds my kids throw up if I feed em before there ready, I just think they will wake when they hungry and I wouldn't like someone annoying me making me eat something when happily asleep, everyone's different though some people swear by them. X

    I dream feed her as her last feed is around 7 and I think that's too early for her to go through don't u ? Health visitor said jus wake to dream feed and she will go through, I leave it four hours til I dream feed her norm anyway

    Amelia has had today

    7.30 bottle of milk

    11.00 bottle of milk and banana

    13.30 bottle of milk and sweet potato

    16.30 bottle of milk

    18.00 bottle of milk

    Amelia's feeds are all over the place this week, she always goes four hours but last few days she crying for feed two n half hours later. Think she might be going through a growth spurt, it has even very hard this week she been crying a lot and very crabby too. I can't even get a routine for her bedtime at no with the way she feeding however I put her down at 18.45 and she fell asleep on her own by 19.30 so not too bad and she didn't fight it. Will c if she lasts without waking till my partner comes in at 11 to dream feed her.
    I've read a lot on Internet about a lot of four month olds start to wake through night after sleeping through, has anyone experienced this ?

    Try not to compare her to other babies as long as she's feeding well, she maybe just a hungry baby and need the extra, how much does she weigh now? babies who feed well during the day usually sleep well during the night, Hollie's a really fussy baby lol xx

    Teddy usually has 28oz which is 4x 7oz bottles but sometime will leave an oz or so at a few feeds depends on his mood, I'm not worried as he sleeps through and is thriving in all areas so he must get what he needs x
