Hi everyone, I'm new to Mumsnet I'm having a little dilemma here with my 4 month old daughter. I'm wondering if I should drop the dream feed at 10pm. We have to wake her to give her this feed. She then sleeps till 6am, when I wake her for the morning feed. But just recently she's not been taking as much on the 6am feed. This morning she only took 3.5oz. I'm wondering if we dropped the 10pm feed, she would sleep right thought till 6am then take her whole feed? She's currently being fed every 4 hours and usually takes 7oz. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance ￼
I would drop it , our twins are 4 months are on 6 oz x 5 bottles and sleep through. If she's having 7 oz with a feed at 10 pm too then she would be having 35 oz which is to much.
