Night/day mix up?

Any advice welcomed!
8 month old. Eats well during day, 3 meals. Still predominantly breastfed.
BF 6am ish, then doesn't feed again until 6pm.
7oz bottle dream feed at 11pm ish.
Feeds overnight anywhere between 2 and 4am.
Can't help thinking that night and day a bit mixed up?? Have tried offering feed in afternoon (breast and bottle)- not interested.
Any advice how to turn things around?

Daytime has probably got too interesting to feed. Trying to go somewhere quiet for daytime feeds can help but unfortunately it is one of those things that you tend to need ot ride out and it will pass. Do you have a DP? I have tended to send dh in first to see if they will settle and then feed if they won't.

Thanks for reply. I can ride it out as not really a big inconvenience, but will try and find some quiet during the day this week and see if I can persuade him! Have 4 year old too, so not always quiet/focussed on him!
He still sleeps in our room as I have just managed to get him to go to sleep in a cot......
I was so strict with my first child with routines, not co-sleeping etc....... But have to say that I have enjoyed co-sleeping much more and I'm not half as tired!
He does tend to come into bed with me after night feed so that might be contributing smile
