    Looking for any anecdotal advice:
    I have just stopped breast feeding my son at 9 months (I'm pregnant again and my milk supply just disappeared - same thing happened with my daughter) so switched to formula. He is going all day with no milk feeds and just solids but at night has a 5oz bottle at 7.30pm,10.30pm, 12.30am, 3.30am and 6am. I can't get him to take a bigger feed so I tried hungry baby formula but it's made no difference at all. And I know he is hungry because he gets wriggly and won't settle until he has a feed. I know that 5oz was about what he was taking from me in a breast feed and would do that every 2-3 hours so I expect it's just habit that he needs to feed that often. Anyone got any ideas on ways to encourage him to take more? X
