Just as I was about to try and wean her during the day (keeping BF for am and pm as am back working - 2 days a week from home as am a writer) DD2 has started feeding at 1am 3am and 5am! Any tips please!!

4 month sleep regression/ growth spurt? In which case not sure what you can do about it if they are genuinely hungry? Have you already started cutting back day feeds? If so, baby could be making up lost calories at night, so perhaps try to feed more during day?

Have decided I can't wean her off BF it's not fair -so am having my mum look after her while I'm working and bring her to me when she's hungry.
As for night - have gone to bed with her at 7pm the last 2 evenings!

Funny things happen at 4 months I'm afraid. Have a google of the 4 month sleep regression. However, as its not really about food, day weaning to formula shouldn't make a difference.
