DS sleeps from 10.30 bottle, till 5ish for last few nights, but feeding at 5 means he's not ready for another feed till more like 9. This means he is then not wanting dream feed later that night and then has 2 wakings, at 1 and 5.

So if i buy 2 cartons of no2 milk and give it as dream feed for couple of nights will this do him any harm.
I would use same brand of course, and i'm only testing the theory. What do we reckon?

when dd fed in the night I still gave a top up feed around 7/7.30am to keep him on track for the other day feeds. I used hungry milk from around 14 weeks - ds never went much further between feeds but seemed a bit more settled.

how old is your baby?

He's 17 weeks. Seona- How much is a top up? Do you just make 5oz or so and see how much they take?

Yes, I would just make up a smaller amount and see how much they take from it. It means that the rest of the feeds are at roughly the same time rather than varying from day to day by hours at a time.

Thanks. I think getting up when i know he would sleep in, ie 8-8.30 is my problem, inherently lazy! I'll post tomorrow and report what happens. thanks again
