Poll for night feeders

How many times does your baby eat between 12-6am? During the night are you feeding via breast, bottle, or a bit of both? For us, a bottle at 3 and another at 6. She nurses in bed a couple of times too. When she starts latching and unlatching repeatedly I know it is bottle time.

Re: Poll for night feeders

  • We typically have two feedings via breast in that time. She will wake for a feeding at 12 or 1 and then anywhere from 3 to 5. It is rare that we just have 1 or even no feedings in that time. The night schedule changes every month or two.

  • ....if it wasn't for me making some changes she would stay latched all night long.

  • A breastfeeds once during that time.  Lately it has been around 4, but last night he was up at 2:30.  He eats again and is up for the day around 7.

  • A has one feeding during that time, between 4 and 5 am. These days he sleeps from 7 to 4 or 5 without waking.

  • He might nurse once during that time. Sometimes he'll wake around midnight then sleep until morning (5:30-7:30). Other nights he'll sleep until 4 or 5. He'll usually go back to sleep for a couple more hours. If he wakes after 4:45 then he gets a bottle from DH if it's a workday for me cuz I have to get ready. Oftentimes he won't go back to sleep for DH.

  • E usually nurses around 10 and will sleep anywhere from 4-6am. If earlier, he nurses and goes back to sleep. If he gets up after 5, he is usually up for a good 1.5 to 2 hrs, before taking a morning nap. Sometimes he wakes up between 1-2 am for a snack (rarely these days) and even more rare he will sometimes skip the 10 pm feeding and sleep from 739 pm to 5am. I don't mind the night feedings now, we nurse all of them and he is efficient and I can be back in bed in 10 min. Thankfully, the days up being up for over an hr whenever he woke up are gone.

  • Between that time he gets up 1-2x. He is BF. We don't use bottles at home... just at day care.

  • Once or twice?  I have no idea, honestly.  We mostly co-sleep and I nurse him lying down, so I'm barely conscious most of the time.  My breasts are often full in the morning, though, so I don't think he actually nurses a lot.

  • Usually 1-2 times. Usually at 3:30 and then around 6 when she wakes for the morning.

  • DS usually goes down around 9pm...wakes around 4am then again anywhere from 6-7 am and then he will usually go back down until 9am.  I usually nurse him in his room in less then 10 minutes.  If I have to work the next day my husband sometimes will take a feeding and will give him 3-4 ounces of BM in a bottle.

  • He usually wakes once between 12-2 to BF. I just now started working on cutting that feeding out and having him go back to sleep and it's working well.

  • DS nurses between 1am-4am and then usually again at 5 depending on when he first woke up. Then up for the day and nurses again between 6-8 (depending on the last feeding he got.)

  • LO has been up way too much but nurse at least 2x a night, if not more. He has been up too much the past two months or so. I was hoping it would pass, but it has not. As soon as this bottom tooth pops through, I am sleep training again.

    This is exactly us too. He goes to bed at 8, gets up to nurse between 1am-4am and then again between 5-6am depending on when he woke up. He's up for the day between 7 and 8.

    Eli usually gets up once (sometimes twice) to eat, always via breast.  We have a monstrously large and comfortable La-Z-Boy recliner in his nursery so we snuggle up in that and he snacks and goes back to bed.

    E is up once or twice and feeds for about five minutes and is back asleep. Nursing her is the quickest way to get her asleep, so I give in.
