My lb is 13 weeks, weighs a stone and bottle fed. I was doing the dream feed but doesn't seem to work for him as can often be up an hour later, so have stopped doing it and he's going through til about 3. He's then stirring, not fully waking but it getting him back to sleep involves me or hubby in his room putting dummy in and not feeding him until 6am ish. My question is does he still need feeding? Tried water but hated it. My daughter is now 7 so really can't remember what she did!

Yes, your 13 week old is very likely to need a night feed. You are also more likely to get more sleep by giving a feed.

Yes you should still feed and you shouldn't be giving water as an alternative. I fully expected a night feed until 6 months so would not withhold milk at 13 weeks.
