Hi all, posted this on sleeping but think it's more for the feeding forum!!

Just wondering if anyone's LO voluntarily gave up the DF?

I've been having a lot of trouble getting my 7 month old to take her bottles (ff). She's went from taking around 30oz a day to 23oz a day. Both including about 3oz at the DF. I'm giving her a puréed dinner every night and giving her some breakfast most mornings, depending on her mood/when she needs naps etc

However the past two nights she's been really unsettled during and after the DF and only took 1.5oz. Do you think she's telling me she no longer needs it..?! I'm worried that if I drop it that she'll only take about 20oz of milk with 1 or 2 'solids' a day...

We bf so I don't know about bottles, but my LO gave up dream feeding around the introduction of solids. Disturbed sleep probably isn't hunger but teeth, maybe?!

I've managed to get 23oz plus some shepherds pie for dinner, so I'm going to try and go without the DF!! Wish me luck...!!!!

I found with DS that around 6 months he started getting really grouchy at dream feed time so one day I just stopped it and he's never had it since! Maybe try it, you'll soon know if your little one needs that feed smile
