i didn't produce milk so we bottle feed our daughter with enfamil & when she was 3 wks old we started giving her enfamil restful night it's formula w/cereal already in it. & she's been sleeping through the night since (she's 14 wks) we give it to her around 7pm play with her for an hr she goes to sleep around 8-830 and sleeps til about 7am. & if they're hungry they'll get up crying ;0) there have been a few nights that she's gotten up cause she was hungry, we give her about 6ounces @ bed.

How big are your babies that are going all night without feedings? Have you started them on cereal before bed?

My baby is 13 weeks now and she has been sleeping through since she was about 10wks, she tends to feed more often in the daytime now instead of waking at night. As long as he is getting all the milk he needs he will be fine and I'm sure he will soon let you know if he's hungry :)

I let georgia sleep from 6pm til 6am and sometimes she will sleep longer. From 3 weeks old i have given her a bath then a bottle then bed and she sleeps all night, even when she was breast fed, more often than not she will go back to sleep after her morning bottle anyway

if he wakes up @3, just soothe him and put him back to sleep, he's used to going without a bottle so he'll be fine. lucky you!!

I feel a lot better :) ty! At times I don't want to wake him up at 11/12 cause he's sleeping but when I do he drinks like 1 oz and goes back to sleep till 5/6am. Lets say I let him sleep and he wakes up around 3am should I give him the bottle :( thats what I don't want.

My daughter is now 3 months old and has been sleeping through the night since she was a month old. She gets her bottle around 8:30pm - 9pm and she doesn't wake up for breakfast until around 7:30am-8:30am. She is gaining weight wonderfully and has no problem. When he's hungry he'll let you know :)

When I had my first daughter I was worried about the same thing. The doctor reassured me that if she gets hungry throughout the night she will wake up and cry for it. As long as your baby is still growing and gaining the weight needed he should be fine. At least that is what my doctor had told me. I hope I helped. Good luck.
