    Might sound like a really silly question but say if your LO wakes up earlier than usual and you give them a feed...do you find yourself giving them an extra bottle during the day?? I was looking at the formula box and i know there is a guideline on how many bottles they should have on 24 hours...do you follow this or give extra if necessary??

    I feed when he is hungry and don't go by guidelines. I always felt that your baby knows how much they need.
