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

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

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

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
