I'm a mom of 3 little ones. I' m still breastfeeding my 11mnth old, she wakes up every hour to 2 hours during the night. I try to put her back to sleep without giving her the breast but without much success, I've started to put her on for a few minutes and then slip in the bottle. She gets histerical! Most of the times when I breastfeed her during the night she doesn't take just a few sips, but drinks strong and I'm not sure if she is still hungry as she's not a great eater. She doesn't use the dummy either and thats one of the reasons I struggle to get her to take the bottle. I need to go for a small operation in my knee and have to sleep in hospital for one night, but I know I've got to get her to drink the bottle in order to have peace about her staying at home with her dad.
