Which night feeding goes away first?
We’re in the process of weaning our 7 month old son’s first night feeding. Is there a typical or recommended time of night for a feeding if we’re down to one feeding a night?
It would be most typical for that single feeding to happen somewhere in the last few hours of the night. That said – if he eats at 1am and sleeps until morning or eats at 4am and sleeps until morning, it’s all the same to us! Usually, though, if you feed at 1am he’ll wake again wanting that same reinforcement about 3-4 hours later and if you say “no”, it’s a much harder time of night to get back to sleep without a feeding. So…..usually better to keep that one feeding in the last 3-4 hours of the night.
