Hi am looking for advice on when/whether to stop my LOs dream feed. He is 8 1/2 months old and we always gave him a feed at around 11pm until he was about 7 months old. We tried stopping at that time, by reducing it down to only 2oz and then going cold turkey. He slept well for the first 4 mornings, from bedtime at 7pm until around 7am, which was fab!! But then it started to go downhill and he woke at 6.30 (not too bad) 6.00 (still not too bad) but then it got earlier and earlier each morning until it was 4.20am! We decided to go back to the dreamfeed as we felt like feeding him at 4.20am felt like a massive backwards step as he was having night feeds again. So we went back to 11pm dreamfeed and things went back to normal, with some mornings him not waking until 7.45am!! Anyway, here we are another 6 weeks on and we have tried to stop the feed again. The first morning he woke at 5.50, next day 6am, then 6.45 (fab!) but again it has gone backwards and was 5.20am on Sunday and 5.15am this morning. This morning I gave him his bottle and put him back to bed and he did go back to sleep for another 2 hours, so from this point it's not too bad, but like I said earlier it feels like a backwards step. Anyway, to get to the point, do people feel that we are better sticking with the 11pm feed so that he gets up at a reasonable time in the morning, or should we persvere as he shouldn't really be having this 11pm feed at his age and if we think to the future obviously we need to drop it at some point. For those of you who have read any of my other posts you will know how 'difficult' my LO has been and although the daytimes are getting much better, when he is up so much earlier its a loooong day. Any help appreciated!!
