Breastfeeding and night weaning

If you are breastfeeding when did you drop the last night feed? My almost 11 month old eats loads during the day but we really struggle to get him to sleep after 4am unless he has a feed then.

I was wondering if it would be worth introducing a dream feed at 10pm ish to get him to sleep later. His last feed is currently at 7pm shortly before he goes to sleep.

You can always try and see what happens. My first was ff and she needed milk over night until 13 months. We coslept and she was cuddled and rocked to sleep and she didn’t have milk before a sleep so I know she was genuinely hungry/thirsty. It maybe that your lo needs milk during the night still.

Following - sorry no advice! I’ve got a 10month old that feeds throughout the night still, have no idea to stop it.

Fourteen months old for us, absolutely no chance before then without causing massive upset

I BF my son until around 7 months. I then bottle fed when he woke in the night and I slowly reduced the amount I gave him until it was really little (like 50ml) and eventually stopped giving him anything. So much harder to do when BF though.
