DS2 has slept through (7-7ish) from 10 weeks old (yes I know - I am very lucky!) but last night, he completely threw me by needing a bottle at 1am (it was so unexpected that it took me 40 minutes of putting his dummy in, cuddling him, calpol etc to finally realise it was milk he wanted ) - he was obviously hungry cos he downed all 9oz.
He started on solids a few weeks ago but I was only giving him little bits here and there until he turned 6 months old - these last few days, his eating has definitely gone up a notch and he is now having 3 small meals a day plus 4 9oz bottles.
To try and prevent another 1am feed tonight, should I go for 3-hourly bottles so he would have 5 in a day or maybe give him some porridge/weetabix as a supper before his bath? Or should I just go with the night-feeds and assume it is a growth spurt or something?
