sooooo i posted in the wrong group :/
serously, i should know better by now! i posted in newcomers about night weaning a bottle fed baby because i thought they probably had more bottle experience than the lovely ladies here. but i have to say....i dont believe that forcing a 4 month old to go all night without feeding them is my style of parenting. so ANYWAY.....
here is my question. my son is almost 10 months old has has totally reverse cycled. he drinks all his bottles at night and only one during the day. i really want him to do the opposite! he has just started eating one small meal a day at supper time and tastes of food throughout the day. also a lot of the time his donor milk is thin (foremilk) and isnt gestationally accurate so i understand why he wouldnt get very full from it.
but i am dying at night and have been putting off moving him to a crib because i know that getting up and out of bed 5 times a night is going to suck. heck it already sucks to get woken up that many times a night and all i have to do is roll over. i would like to get him back to drinking during the day and sleeping for longer periods at night.
so any advise on GENTLE night weaning?
