Personally if he is hungry then I would do 5 feeds plus one in the night.

Hi, he is probably having a growth spurt, could you up the amount in one or 2 of the bottles? I would still give 5, then one more in the night if needed, but hopefully if there is more in the daytime ones he wont need the night one.

Thanks I will try and get another feed in today I think and hope for the best tonight! I was wondering, if I woke baby up in morning to start the days feeds that might work better to fit in feeds! Any ideas?

hi my daughter went through similar at this age, she started going 12 hours at night and went from 5 4oz bottles in the day and 1 around 2am to 6 6oz bottles during her waking period, but would be so full that her last 2 feeds she would be sick, then started waking in the night.

on the advice of my hv i switched to hungry milk and she started having 5 5oz bottles in the day and going 12 hours at night.
