Breastfeeding at Night
Hello again

I forgot to ask you one question. My daughter is also breastfed at 3am. She has a bottle feed at 10pm when I go to bed so that I will not be waked up 30-60 minutes after having fallen asleep. She then sleeps for 5 hous, which is great. She will soon be 7 months old so should we expect a longer sleep than 5 hours?, and how do we change her sleep cycle, should we e.g. prefer to move the morning feed to 4-4.30am?

The thing is that for the time being she wakes up at 2.40am and I will then try to wait until 3am before I feed her ... should I offer her water in stead or may she at all be hungry at this hour?

Best regards Lisbeth
