    O has started leaving an ounce in the bottle then finishing it like 1hr and a half later!
    He was having 5 oz every 3 hrs now it's 4 oz wait an hour and a half then 1oz then 1hr and a half wants another feed!!!

    Any advice?

    Can you leave an ounce sitting that long? I always thought you had to throw it away breast or formula after half hour or so.

    Sophie's doing the same. Is he falling asleep during the bottle then finishing the ounce? She falls asleep after 2 and I stay with her for half an hour and then and then she finishes the rest off

    He might have trapped wind which clears and makes room for more food, might be worth giving him a few burps before you stop his feed?!?!

    He always brings up loads of wind. I wind him after every ounce as otherwise he struggles little burper!
