... For those of you doing dream feeding... I'm confused because I've read in several cases that you shouldn't let your baby sleep while feeding or fall to sleep at the bottle or breast. But isn't the point of dream feeding to feed them without really waking them up? ... (2 replies)

... I'm not exactly sure what dream feeding is but.... I wouldn't worry about what people are telling you. If you want to continue feeding him in the middle of the night than go for it. My son is almost 19 weeks and we just follow his cues. When he's ready to sleep the whole night he will. ... (3 replies)

... I have begun dream feeding my 19 week old son at around 11pm. It works pretty well for allowing me to sleep through until he wakes in the morning around 5. ... (3 replies)
... Is it the same as sleep feeding? When DS was a newborn and spent the first 6 weeks of life in the NICU, we were under instructions by his doctor to set the alarm and FEED him every 3-4 hours to regain the weight he'd lost and because of failure to thrive. Lot of times we'd get up and he'd sleep thru his feedings. (2 replies)

... I did this for a while too when ds was an infant. I wasn't sure of when to stop as well, and I'm not sure of the right answer, but I can tell you that I night nursed for a year, and it wasn't the always the best thing, because I was getting him used to the night feeding. Dr. Sears has a lot of info on this in his Breastfeeding Book ,and also on their website, maybe they have... (3 replies)
... You aren't supposed to leave a bottle in the crib because of tooth decay and the child would have to be able to feed themsleves. With dream feeds you are supposed to stop around 3 or 4 months and your baby shouldn't have teeth before then. ... (2 replies)
... hi krissi! :wave: there isn't a hard and fast rule regarding when to put a baby in the crib. We had ours in our room in a bassinet for the first 2 weeks and then put them in the crib. Granted, they were cuddled right up next to each other so maybe that helped them sleep. Also, I would be amazed (and in complete awe) if you had your 7-week-old sleeping through the night,...

... pm. I wouldn't dream of starting a cereal just to keep her statisfied. If she's hungry, I feed her. Feeding on demand is a lot easier on their system then scheduled feeding, plus, it has been shown to help reduce childhood obesiety issues, and other food avertions. ... (19 replies)
... you have the process you have to go through each time YOU go to the bathroom. Do that about 3 times and you'll be where I was when I laid down in my bed for the feeding and fell asleep. And my baby slept for 4 hours. It was heaven. ... (16 replies)
... Hi Jordyn!Iím in/was in the same situation, only my dd is 3.5 months old. She was sleeping thru the night since 6.5 weeks old. Only after her 2 month check up and shots, she stopped. I was freaked out because I was returning back to work in a few weeks and thought there was no way that I could work full time and wake up with my child 2 or 3 times a night. PLUS, my dh works...

... or her to wake before I feed her. I just switch on a very dim nightlight and keep communication to a minimum, then put her back in her cot when she has finished feeding and follow the same routine as when I put her to bed for the night. ... (10 replies)
... Hi, my baby is the same age and sleeps through the night, sometimes she would wake up once. After reading different books (my favorite is the baby whisperer), asking the pediatrician, etc, this is what I did, maybe it will work for you too. Night sleep is influenced by what happens during the day. At 5 1/2 months a baby should eat every 4 hours, my baby eats at 8, 12, 4, 8... (6 replies)

... Our daughter, Alexa, breaths fast sometimes too Steph, usually when she is sleeping. I assume it is normal because you experience the same thing and I also think it just may be a dream......but she does the same thing. As far as feeding, she is suppose to eat 1-2 ounces. If she is really hungery she will eat 2 ounces, but not likely. Usually just an ounce or so. She is... (250 replies)
