My baby - almost 11weeks old now - is breast fed but at night has a bottle of expressed milk as his last feed. He gets 150ml - just over 5 ounces - he completely finishes it and does look for more but after a minute or two when he realises there is no more he settles and sleeps. He was sleeping 8 hours but now waking up at about 5am (6 hours) - just wondered if i can increase what I offer him or will it be too much for his stomach and make him reflux/spit up/uncomfortable

Experiment - give him an extra half ounce and see how he does.

potas, could be an easier option just to put him to the breast again after he has finished the bottle.

tiltok - I am sure he would take more just thought 5 ounces was quite a lot already - maybe I should just try and see what happens
