Dream feeding

We decided a while ago that we wanted to try dream feeding Elizabeth. This is literally feeding her whilst she is still sleeping. We've been told this is easier to do with a bottle so we set about adapting the night time routine that we already had in place. Two weeks ago we were starting the routine at 9pm, giving her a wash then a bottle, then straight to bed. We now start at about 7pm.

Initially we tried doing the dream feed at about 11pm using a bottle. This worked really well on the first night but the next two were a bit disastrous. We decided to then try the dream feed on the boob before abandoning anything. That small change seemed to work really well so we did the same again last night. She quite happily fed in her sleep.

We'll continue with the dream feed for now and see how it goes.
