Hi, my baby boy is 15 weeks old, he was only 5Ib 14 at birth is now 13IB 6oz so doing well. He is formula fed now, can take anything from 3-7oz! he has a last feed about 10pm then wakes about 1am, then 3, then 5, i am unsure if he is hungry as sometimes i can settle him, but if i offer a bottle he could drink 6oz, health visitor has said he should be going longer without at night then he will take more in the day but it desnt work like that! and his intake really goes down, ive tried it. obviously i dont really want his days and nights mixed up, should i give a 10pm feed then try to get him until 4ish?

HVs and their pronouncements! You don't say how much he's taking in the day, but imvho, if a baby wakes up and won't be settled by anything but milk, it's probably hungry.

He's only little, plenty of time to settle down into solid sleeping. wink
