At what age can you start dream feeding?


My LO is coming up to 7 weeks now and just wandering at what age you can start trying to dream feed?

He goes about 6 hours at night anyway (sometimes more), so would love to stretch it out with a dream feed is possible xx

I would love to give dreamfeeding a go but I just can't find it in me to disturb when he's fast asleep. I'm scared it will just back fire on me

aw I know what you mean but when we feed Ellie is is around 11pm and midnight before we go to bed and she is FAST asleep lol and doesne wake at all as your not really disturbing them as silly as that may sound as we are shoving a bottle in their mouth lol but it does really work takes a few times to do it to get used to xx

This concerns me as well. He sleeps really good at night and i'm worried if i disturb his sleep that will be it for the night. On the other hand, if it works, it would be fantastic xx

lol I so know what you mean we were always like if Ellie is sleeping let her sleep as when she woke in the night she would be awake for HOURS so we thought we will give it a go and it has worked for us, it might not be for everyone though xx

I just started dreamfeeding this week (partly because LO started eating less, she dropped from 4oz to 2oz). She was going about 5 hours. She goes to bed at 7.30, I feed her about 10.00 and she wakes about 5.00.
I'm just worried about weaning her off it
