I breastfed my baby boy for the first 2.5 months and he has been stricly on formula since. He is now 4 months old and feeding 4 ounces of formula every 3 hours even during the night. We have tried to up the amount of formula he eats during the day in hopes that he'll feel more full and stop eating at night but he's not ready for it because he ends up spitting it up because his tummy is too full. The paediatrician says he shouldn't be feeding anymore at night and to try other methods of comfort when he wakes up and cries at night. I've tried putting his pacifier in, changing his diaper and rocking him back to sleep but nothing works until I give him a bottle. Are your 4 month olds still feeding during the night?
