dd is 10.5 months but miles away from sleeping through so we're continuing with a dream feed about 10pm. As this has always been boob as she refused a bottle it hasn't been a true dream feed as she does wake up a little. I always worry that this is interrupting her sleep patterns and setting us back. So wondering about doing with bottle instead but how do people do this? do you still pick them out of cot or can you pop teat in and they'll drink in their sleep (in cot) or might that be a bit choky?? would appreciate any advice, thanks

You pick her up out the cot, lights off/low nice and quiet and she should just sleepily take the feed.

I always dreamfed my little one in his cot. Never picked him up. He never choked. But your choice. grin
