    I was just wondering what other babies routines are like and what times they feed Ella has 5oz 6 times a day at the following times:

    8am
    12pm
    4pm
    7.30pm
    10.30pm
    3.30am

    but sometimes these vary a bit and it can be more like 11.30 by the time she has finished her last feed, by this point im quite tired, I was thinking there might be a better routine where I can get to bed a bit earlier.

    Does Coby sleep from 11.30pm to 7.30 am? Thats really good, suppose I have a similar routine except Ella doesnt sleep through, Hopefully she will drop the 3.30am feed soon, that would be nice :)

    Yeh Ella is the same she is good will go straight back down after her feedin the night. Do you make all your bottles up at once? when do you make them? I make six bottles up after the 8AM feed and before the 12pm feed x x

    I have no idea when Brody feeds or sleeps, I just let him get on with it!

    He usually sleeps as I do the morning school run, that's all I know LOL

    Alex is

    7.30am
    10.30am
    2pm
    5pm
    8pm
    12.30pm

    he has 5oz and goes about half hour either side of the times. He'll sleep through to about 6.30am but parps with his bottle if he gets fed at that time, so he has sleepy cuddle time for an hour. I tried 'dream feeding' him at 11.30pm but without any luck - he's so zonked he won't take much and then wakes at 4am wanting his usual morning routine

    Yes I am breastfeeding!!! Sometimes i wish he could be on formula just for this reason but then I like breastfeeding him. I never had any problems with sore nipples, on the contrary it relieves me when he is drinking!!!! But it is just the frequency of the feeds that made me not enjoy it as much as I could!!!

    Ava is usually up for the day around 8-9am. She'll have a bottle and a couple of hours later she'll have some porridge and fruit. She has atleast 24oz of formula a day spread over 4 feedings. For dinner she has some veggies(sometimes rice with it) and some water in her sippy cup(though she doesn't drink much, just throws the sippy around). She gets sleepy around 8-9pm and will sleep until 2ish before she wants a bottle and then she usually goes right back to sleep until morning.
