Should i feed her at 2am so she sleeps til 6am?

Hi Maree my 5month old mostly sleep all night but sometimes she wakes at 2am i put her dummy back in her mouth and she goes back to sleep but than sometimes she will wake every hour after that and i do the same thing until 6am. Should i feed her at 2am so she sleeps til 6am?

Answer: Hi, At 5 months she may well still require one overnight feed and I would offer the feed at 2am. Generally from about 6 months on you might expect baby to sleep through the night, the most important thing is alays settle baby to bed awake so when she is ready to sleep right through she will know how to and not relying on a comfort feed. Cheers, Maree
