We've spent weeks researching and testing breast pumps and bottles in real homes with real families. Read our baby feeding bottle and breast pump reviews to find out which ones were awarded Mumsnet Best.

So how do I cut down on feeds?

You could try distracting her. Going somewhere so she doesn't think about it.

Or reduce the length of the feeds so that she's getting less every time

Dd's the same for me YG. I was only trying to suggest what I've heard on here so don't know from experience.

A friend of mine did it by distracting her ds whenever he wanted a drink. She had a really hard time of it for a few days. The problem I hae that she didn't is that she did cc with her son so he was sleeping all night for her. Whenever I'm away from dd and she doesn't get her 'quota' she wakes me a lot in the night and seems to make up for it then. She wakes once most nights and I can cope with that but when she wakes me every hour I'm shattered the next day.

If you manage it will you let me know how?

I started to give ds a cup of milk at lunchtime - It took a long time to work out who was more stubborn - me and DH or him. We won in the end though.

Have you tried any drinking cups, Ds would only have a Heinz soft teet cup?
