Dropping the late night feed…

Posted on: 14/02/2011

So tonight me and the hubby have agreed that we will drop Jensons 10:30pm feed… I have my fingers crossed that he will still sleep through the night, but I dread to think what time he will wake up in the morning!! At the moment he is really good and doesnt wake up until about 8:00am every morning, so not too early!

Dropping this feed has coincided with us also upping his solid food intake throughout the day, so Im hoping that it balances out, so at 6 1/2 months old the big test comes as to whether or not Jenson will STILL go through the night without this last feed.

Dont get me wrong we havent not spoken to health professionals before doing this. But to be honest the answers were all mixed, Health Visitor advised to keep giving him the 10:30pm feed until he was a year old and yet others have said do it when you feel it is right. I read somewhere that babies start to sleep through the night once they start taking in enough calories during the day, we were lucky enough that Jenson started sleeping through the night at 3 months old, so Im hoping that with this feed dropped that he still has enough calories to take him through the night. Guess we wont know until we try it!

Wish us luck! 🙂
