Anyone else still waking up for nighttime feedings?

How do you handle nighttime feedings?(I.e. Do you have to go all the way downstairs for a bottle, do you have a night/day warmer in your room or baby's room, etc.)

How long does it take your LO to go back to sleep?

Kaylin occasionally wakes up around 4:00 am.

I have to go down stairs for a bottle. I have a night/day warmer, but I ALWAYS forget to put a bottle in there! It doesn't really bother me to have to go get it though...

She is very good about going back to sleep, she almost always falls asleep during the last ounce or two. Some times she won't even finish the bottle, and will sleep through burping LOL

Luckily we're in an apartment and our bedroom is right oustide the kitchen/dining room area. I was in a really good habit of prepping bottles at night, warming them, then going back in the bedroom. Henry would drink, then fall right back to sleep.

the past few days, he's been taking bigger bottles (anywhere from 5-6 oz) and sleeping longer at night. Two of the last three nights, he was up for about 90 minutes, but went back to sleep easily. Last night he passed out aroudn 6, got up at 12:30, 4:30 and 7:00 to eat.

She hasnt been getting up at night for quite a while. She got up last night at midnight and was acting hungry so I fed her and she ate only about 4oz and fell back asleep for the rest of the night..that is pretty unlike her though.

Trinity had gotten down to one overnight feeding. I can't really call it a 'nighttime' feeding because it would be between 4 and 5 AM. Lately she's been waking up at 1 AM to eat. She usually will fall back asleep quickly.

Cassidy still gets up in the night for a bottle. Yeah. 18 months later, I'm still waiting to sleep through the night.

Anyway, she only eats about 4 ounces, and then goes back to sleep quickly and easily.

Bryant normally wakes up around 2 or 3am. He gets a 5oz bottle and goes back to sleep.

Sara, you are scaring me! I was hoping this would end soon!

95% of the time she sleeps through the night, but every once in a while she gets up and gets a bottle, but she falls back asleep right away.

Karen, I was hoping it would be over too! Trinity's only a few weeks behind your baby and we're still doing nighttime feedings. But instead it seems like she's regressing. She wakes up twice before time to get up. Once late at night and again in the early morning hours.

Jackson is still waking up 2-3 times during the night...he had about a week where he was only waking up one time...but now he's up a lot more which is no fun!
When he goes to bed at night I fill 3 bottles with the right amount of water and fill a formula dispenser with the right amount of powder and put everything on his bookshelf in his room next to the glider. When he wakes up I make the bottle right then and he eats then falls asleep while I burp him! He's very good about going back to sleep which I'm happy about!
I have never warmed his bottles for him, he takes them just fine room temperature!

We premake the overnight bottles so we make 3 just in case. Emily has been taking her last bottle about 10:30 and then wakes up at 4:45 and then at 7:45. She is sleeping really well. Her old schedule was a little better she would take her bottle at 9 then wake up at 3:30 and then 6:30 which is what I hope she will get to before I go back to work. We have to heat the bottle which takes about 4 minutes. She usually goes right back to sleep right after her bottle but then at 7:30 she is up for the day.
