Cutting Out Night Feeds
Hi Helen

My son Elias has slept through the night since Christmas. If he wakes up, my boyfriend gets out of bed to comfort him, as he will start crying if he know that I am in the room and he cannot have a breastfeed.

For how long can Elias be without a milk feed? He is settled for the night at approx. 07pm and sleeps until 05-06am. He has started to become very restless at about 03-04am, which is rather hard for my boyfriend, since he has to go to work the next morning. Do you recommend a feed at 03-04am?

He has solids for breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, and dinner, and I breastfeed hom morning, before the late morning nap, afternoon and evening.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Best regards

Pernille
