cluster feeder-introduce dream feed?

My baby does a bit of cluster feeding in the evening.. 5 ish till 8-9ish with 30-45min break for bath and getting dressed.
He sleeps from 9ish for 4 hours till midnight, then 3-4 hours till 3 or 4 and then wakes up between 5 and 7.

I wonder if introducing a dream feed would help shift things.. but as he is still feeding at 8 or 9 am not sure if he would be hungry enough to take anything earlier than midnight.. which is what he is doing naturally anyway...

Does anyone have any advice or any experience of this?
By moving things forward by 2 hours might mean we only have one night waking rather than 2..

I think anything and everything is worth a try, but I've introduced a dream feed 3 times at different stages and each time it's given me no advantage at all (i.e. still woke up for the next usual feed) so I've given up on the idea! Works well for others I know though.

If it works, don't get disheartened if it stops working later, their routines/habits do change over time.
