    Default Dream feeds

    Did anyone ever do this? Im not sure if I should let them sleep or if it would be beneficial to wake them to feed. I'm scared it would wake them right up and it would be hard to get them back down.

    I have no idea what counts as a dream feed but for a while I was gently moving my boy to the bed at the first whimpers and boob-feeding him. He only half woke up and would go right back to sleep. Now he fills up before bed -- I just breastfed for an hour and 20 minutes straight and am now topping him off with formula (he took 2.5 oz) and he'll sleep 10 hours on that. I get my girl up to eat still but she always wakes up.

    Dream feed is waking them up between 10 and 11 and it suppose to get then through till the morning. A friend of mine is using a dream coach and it seems to be working for her so I think I might try. The thing that drives me nuts is that I know the only reason B is waking up is because he keeps rolling on his back. Anyone have a suggestion for something I can use to keep him from rolling. And K has been waking up because of this stupid cold so once she gets over it I think she'll sleep better. She has been better then B lately.

    I did not breastfeed my twins. We did feed them between 10 and 11 most nights until they gave it up. Usually, they would feed between 6 and 7, fall asleep, then wake for the feed at 10 or 11. Then, they were usually out most nights. As for rolling onto his back, I think he needs to learn to fall asleep after he moves. I have never been extremely reactive to my kids at night though. If they whimpered or fussed for a minute or two, I left them alone. My rule was (and still is) if they scream or cry for a longer period of time, then I respond.
