I still give Isla a dreamfeed before I go to bed - usually she eats around 9/9:30...and then she eats at 5am (sometimes going back to sleep, sometimes she's up for the day then). She eats dinner at 6:30ish and then doesn't have a bedtime bottle when she goes to bed around 8. I don't really want to move her bottle to bedtime and have her start relying on that to fall asleep b/c it was SO easy to stop bottles at a year with keller b/c I never used them for falling asleep...but I'm not sure how long I have to keep this up. I guess as she gets closer to a year and eats bigger dinners?

How long does your LO go at night between eats?

Gabriel is in bed between 8:30-9PM & USUALLY (here lately he's been doing GREAT) doesn't wake up for food until 7 or 7:30...sometimes he'll sleep until 8:30. Otherwise if he gets a little restless I just give him his binky & he's good to go. He has dinner at 5:30, a "snack" around 7:30, and a bottle before bed. Unfortunately I think he needs the bottle to get ready for bed...

I think that Isla sleeping until 5 is actually good since she doesn't get anything right before bed...tho I can imagine that's really early for you.

We're still breastfeeding here, and Graham eats about 2x in the night usually, sometimes 3x. We co-sleep though, and I barely remember feeding him.

Last night was a bad night but this is how it went.....BF at 8pm. He went to bed at 8:30 after daddy reading to him. Woke up at 9:30pm. Daddy tried soothing him back down, but he wasn't having that. I went in there and he immediately rooted around, so he got fed at 9:50pm. He woke up at midnight. I fed him and we started cosleeping. Up at 3am to eat. Up at 5am to eat. Up at 6am to eat. Up at 9am to eat. And I decided to start our day. I think he's going through a growth spurt though because he ate like crazy all day yesterday too. But good grief! So, yes we still feed after bedtime. :ROFL: Granted he's BF only and it's not like he's getting 8oz a go. But I guarantee he had more than 40oz yesterday as much as he was eating.
A good night for us is DS down at 8-8:30 pm. Up to eat at 1-2am. Cosleep. Up at 6-7am to eat. And I can usually manage to get him to go back to sleep till 8am.

Yep we're still bfing and Ava normally gets up about 3x a night to feed. She's in bed by 7:30pm and gets up at 11:30, 2:30 and then 5:30 for the morning, it's like clock work with her.

Camryn bfs before we go to bed...usually around 10:30, I go in and nurse her. Then she is usually set until 6-7am. Sometimes she wakes up around 3 but usually only if she's teething or something is bothering her.

Yes, I bf Max several times at night. But I'm usually not sure if he's actually hungry -- I'm just too tired for a long, drawn out soothing process that may not work. At the beginning of the night he goes about 4 hours without eating, but after that it's 1.5-3 hours.

Sophia has a bottle before bedtime and wakes up a couple times during the night to eat. Sometimes more than that. Not much sleep around here!

Gray has his last bottle between 6pm and 7pm (7pm is LATE for him though)... and he sleeps through til about 6:30... I've noticed though that now he's not ravenous for his bottle at 6:30, now he'll normally get up and have a play and then want his bottle...

we're about the same as you. Except teddy gets a bottle at bedtime (7pm) and then around midnight. Depending on when he wakes in the morning, he might get a bottle so i can try to sleep a little longer.

Claeb falls asleep sometime between 9-10 and sleeps until abotu 3:30 or so and then he is hungry and wants to nurse. But he doesn't usually go back to a good sleep. He kinda fusses, is restless and wants to sleep b/c his eyes are closed the whole time but I think his reflux bothers him about that time. He kinda nurses on and off during that time b/c I'm trying desperately to get him to go back to sleep. He usually does about 6am. If he barfs all over me, then he's good to go and falls back to sleep sooner. The hours between 3:30 and 6am aren't fun in our house!

Aww Jaime - Keller was like that, it was awful! He would often just be awake from one feeding to the next moaning and groaning b/c of it. I hope he grows out of it soon because I remember how exhausting it is for us and how painful for them

Hmm, anywhere from 3-12 hours. Like if she went to bed too early, isn't feeling well, is growing, etc.. She will get up at 11, 3, and 5 like clock work. When all is well she usually goes 8pm to 6am with me getting her up at 3am on the nights I am out.

It varies with Madilynn.. For the past few weeks we've had a few times of STTN.. Most of the time she's at least up once for a bottle..
