Does anybody dream feed to help baby sleep longer? I’ve seen a few things about this. I don’t want to force him to have milk if he doesn’t need it but I know he will be up in a couple of hours for milk.

With my firstborn, we did a dream feed. My partner did a feed before he went to bed about 10/11ish, sometimes later. But with my little girl (solely breastfed) I didn’t do a dream feed as I try to go to bed early and don’t really want to wake myself up to wake her up. I just let her lead the way.

I think if they accept a bottle then it’s amazing for someone else to offer the dream feed, so you can get a lot more hours sleep. With breastfeeding I guess you are up anyway.
