hiya my lg is 5 months (22 weeks) and shes becoming more hungry. i started guving her lil tasters of fruit puree at 20 weeks and it seemed to settle her. she used to sleep through the night but now wakes up at 2am and 4am for a feed. i am breasfeeding and plan to until about 6-7 months. her feedin routine now is breast at 8.30, 12.30 then at 2.00 she has a small bit of puree then 30mins later the breast then the breast the rest of the day (4.30, 6.30, 8.30, 10.30). i want to try and wean her onto formula after her puree but shes not taking to the bottle. she doesnt particulaly like formula either (aptamil 1 gqve her wind and constipation and sma gave her a lot of wind) any advice that could help make it easier plz xxx

Every baby is different but my ds went through one hell of a growth spurt about 2wks before he turned 6mo. He was feeding hourly for a while shock and multiple night wakings, but it settled down back to 2hrly, the joy after a couple of weeks. I would say the night wakings are down to a growth spurt personally.

Good on you for bf for so long - are you planning to stop for any particular reason? I only ask because your dd may have other plans! Fwiw, once ds did have some formula he much preferred cow and gate to aptamil. I'd also repost this is the weaning section perhaps.

Good luck!
