my dcs all born in the winter, with my last right at the start of autumn and it was a cold snowy winter that year. Am i right in thinking it would be much easier to do night feeds in the summer months? would love a dc born in summer, but alas i wont have any more babies

I have one DC born in the summer and one in the autumn and I would agree that the night feeds were slightly more bearable in the summer but only because I wasn't freezing cold while feeding at 3am.... Night feeds just suck whatever time of year they happen, IMO!

I had one at the end of November and one at the end of July. It was easier to get up at night when temperatures were above zero. However, the lighter mornings made it harder to go back to sleep if the feed was after about 4am. I certainly preferred the sun and daylight with the summer born. I don't think I saw daylight for about 6 months with the winter born (that could have been partly due to him being my first though grin )

I have one summer and one winter - and I think winter was easier - you can have plenty of layers to keep warm and snuggly. On the other hand hot sweaty baby on hot sweaty you is not nice.

I've had one in summer and one in winter, night feeds were a pain regardless of the time of year.

I had one winter baby and one summer baby, and it was a pain both times, regardless of time of year.

I thought night feeds with my December born ds were quite cosy, we co-sleep so no getting out of bed.

Early mornings with a toddler are much harder in the winter in my opinion, ds went through a stage of waking at 5, we live in a Nordic country and it got light 4 hours after ds woke up, thoroughly depressing. Ds wakes at 6 now but at least it's light enough to go to the park.

I've had babies in spring, summer and autumn, but No night feeds are any fun. It is a job that has to be done. The best thing I did was to start co sleeping. It doesn't matter what the temperature is if you don't have to leave the comfort of your bed to deal with an awake and hungry baby.
