My LO is 14 weeks and is currently fussing a lot over daytime bottles and as a result woke 3 times last night. She had 180ml at 6.15 then 130ml at 11, 90ml at 3 and 40ml at 5. I've just tried to give her the first bottle of the day at 8.30 and she managed 60ml. Now I'm not sure how to deal with the night wakings now as I'm not sure she's hungry.

I'd probably do the 11pm bottle as a dream feed a little earlier before you go to bed (10 or 10.30pm) and then it's only one night feed at 3am. If she has a good feed at 3am you could try resettling with a dummy at 5am - or I always brought mine into bed with me then and they'd usually sleep a couple more hours.

We've tried an earlier dream feed and she physically can't stay awake long enough to drink it. Also, if we fed at 10/10.30 she would wake at 2/2.30 rather than 3. V tricky!
