Is he sleeping through?

Hi mums, so i just wanted your advice on my 13 week old ds. At about 8 weeks we started a proper bedtime routine, bath, story, bottle. The usual, by between 7 and 8 each night. At about 10 weeks he started sleeping from after his bottle to about 3am and then waking for feed. He has recently in last couple of weeks, pushed it to about 4 and only once to around 6. It really is hit and miss. Last night was 3.15 and then he didnt really settle back down. I do cluster feed, and very loosely follow baby whisperer, and am thinking of adding a feed at 1030 to tonight. Wondered if this is a good idea? The only reason he wakes is for feed, so trying to eliminate that all together. What times do u feed your babies for the last time? Is 7.30 too early and therefore expecting him to sleep beyond 3/4am is too much?

My ds is 17wk he's literally only just started to feed early on 7.30-8 before this it was around 9pm and he'd sleep anywhere to between 5-7am which I was happy with

Carry on with the same routine but try it a little later see how it goes

A dream feed at 10.30 or whenever you go to bed. Try it for a week and see.

It worked for my niece but not my ds or nephew, they just took an extra feed.

He sounds like he's doing well to me.

Leave him to it. I was glad I didn't add a dream feed in, mine just pushed the night feed forward until they did 12 hours at 4 months. It's luck of the draw a lot of it but I'd be tempted to follow their lead

Thanks for your advice ladies. Ive done the feed and hes only took 3 oz so will prob make no difference. Worth a try tho!

We've started dream feeding 7 week old ds at 11. He then goes till about 2:30/3am. 'Last' bottle is usually around half 7/8. And then we put him down in his Moses basket in the living room and then take him into the bedroom after his dream feed. I'd definitely try a dream feed with your dc.
