DD just turned 9 months. She has her last bottle around 6 pm and wakes to eat around 3 or 4 am. I know that 9 or 10 hours is a good stretch, but should I be pushing for more now that she's older? Or is 10 possibly her max?
Seems like most people I talk to say you should drop the MOTN feeding by this age, or that babies can go 12 hours between meals. But I've tried the last two nights and it hasn't gone well. Both nights I've spent about an hour shushing, patting, rocking, and CIO before I finally give in and give her a bottle, after which she goes right to sleep. So is this a habit or hunger?
