From what I gathered by reading this thread- You feed the baby at the same time every night whether they are awake or not? It does go against feeding on demand because you're ultimately getting them on a schedule and/or sleep training them.



There's nothing wrong with it - but honestly some babies are never going to be on a schedule and even ones that are don't follow it everyday. They aren't robots.

Yeah, thats what I feel too. I'm still on the fence about sleep training or not - so far I can manage with the nightfeedings but it would be nice if he starts sleeping longer withing the next 1-2 months.

My SIL followed this book (sorry can't remember the name of it) to a T. Right from the get go, she was all about routines and schedules. In the book it said to do dream feeding, which was at 10pm every night, regardless if they were awake or not. I thought it was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever heard....but it worked for her.
So I was willing to give it ago with LO (6wks) but so far I havnt needed to. Since he was 3 weeks old, he will have his last bottle at 7:30-8ish and sleep until 3:30am sometimes even 5.

I think it was the baby whisperer or something. I haven't read the book, nor do I schedule him cause he actually made his own schedule. But, I would like to have a bit more sleep, since his biggest stretch of sleep happens between 7-12 pm, and thats when I am cooking, cleaning, and have some time with DH. I thought I'd give it a shot the last two days, fed him at 10, but he just seems to wake up earlier Oo

Idk about everyone else but I don't see my dd nursing if she's deeply asleep. If she just licks my b**b if she's not fully awake or hungry.
