LO is 6months Old. Has always slept well and was sleeping through for quite a while from 10weeks Old. Then came teething, Colds, growth spurts and leaps from developmental changes...
He now goes to bed at 7pm sleeps until 7am but wakes once a night around 3am for a bottle.
He drinks he whole 7oz and then goes right back down to sleep straight away no fussing or moaning at all. Does this mean he is genuinely waking because he is hungry? I’m unsure as to when babies are meant to not wake in the night for a bottle?
He has always been a very hungry boy.

He’s still very young to expect him to not need milk in the night. There is no right answer to when they’re ‘supposed’ to not need milk, mostly they drop the feeds themselves once solids are heavily established. The sleep pattern sounds perfect and I wouldn’t change a thing x

That sleep for a 6 month is amazing. I would expect a 6 month old to need milk during the night.

My daughter was 13 months old when she has her bottle during the night.

Thanks for replying! Good to know I'm doing the right thing I was starting to worry I should be trying the drop the night feed but it seems normal for them to still need a bottle at this age 😊 x
