Hello ladies! I have an 8 month old and we still get up once a night for a bottle. She has about 24oz in a day plus breakfast(some fruit) and dinner (veggies mixed with cereal to help her sleep longer). For dinner, about an hour before we put her to bed at 6pm, I give her cereal mixed with veggies to help her sleep longer and an 8 oz. bottle. Sometimes that works to help her sleep through the night and sometimes it doesn't. When she gets up and I cave and give her a 6oz. bottle she downs the whole thing.I just feel so guilty weening her off of her last feeding but I know it would do wonders for me.I'm sure you can all relate that by the end of the day, I'm exhausted. I am the main care taker of our baby since my hubby is in the military. I didn't feel as guilty when we weened her down for 2 bottles to 1 with permission of my doctor at 6 months old because I knew she would still have a feeding in the night. Oh, and she sleeps from 7pm to 5am. My little morning sunshine! Haha! Any suggestions on what I can do would be greatly appreciated.
