    Bethan had night feeds until I got strict with it and stopped (she was only doing it to go back to sleep), but that was only a month or so ago...

    My oldest breastfed til he was 17 months and weaned himself, and woke at night to feed almost that whole time. 6 - 12 months was probably an average of 2-3 times.

    Otter was still feeding every 2-3 hours until 8 months old. Then he started dropping feeds and was STTN by 10 months.

    DK is 9.5 months and wakes a gagillion times per night. Probably 2-3 to have a proper feed. But more often than that to comfort suck. I can't even count them. I really don't want to because I would probably cry. :haha:

    I'm so glad other people are going through what I am! We just moved the cot down a notch so he's coming into bed with us 1st time he wakes prob around 2ish then feeds at 4-5ish &then confort sucks on and off until 7when he wakes. Anyone have probs the 1st part of the night from 7-11pm? Leo keeps waking up constantly.

    On average, he wakes once a night every second night. I often dreamfeed him around midnight though.

    So glad i read this thread. LO STTN from about 4 weeks old, then for the last month she's been waking up 3-4 times each night for feeds. My mum visited last eek and said not to feed her as she'll get used to it, but tbh there doesn't seem to be any other reason for her to wake up, and its the quickest and least stressful way to get her back to sleep so i don't mind! I am looking forward to her STTN again though!!!
