12 weeks too young?
« on: June 19, 2006, 16:50:30 pm »
My son turned 12 weeks on Friday.  Is it too early to start weening him off of night feeds?  He is waking 1-2 times a night and chugging 5 oz.  He is eating a total of 25-30 oz. of formula a day.  Thanks!

Yes, 12 weeks is definitely too young. Many los need a night feed for quite some time, some even up to one year. Your DS will let you know when he doesn't need night feed(s) anymore but for now, keep at it! Before too long he should drop one and only need one feed rather than two.
