My 4 1/2 month old DD has got night and day mixed up... She is feeding every hour and a half a night after 10.00pm and then not really bothering much in the day. She is exclusively BF. Any gentle ways around this? I need to get it sorted, I have a 4 year old too, so no opportunities for me to catch up in the day... hmm

I'm just not sure how to go about reducing night feeds...

Hello - I'm struggling with this slightly with DD (5 months). I have read that you should try and feed them more in the day, particularly before bed to try and 'dose them up' so they don't need so much at night, and you can start shortening the night feeds and lengthening the time between them, Can't say it's working for us just yet though, DD is just getting chubbier and still wanting night feeds - but it might work for you! Good luck.
