Re: When to stop

I always wake my babies to feed them during the day (never at night except a dream feed), pretty much the entire time I nurse. It ensures they are getting their calories during the day which helps early STTN which is something I value. It reduces reverse cycling and night wakefulness since it ensures we have sufficient daytime wakefulness. It teaches my babies not to cry when waking because they are hungry. They have no need to cry and scream for food since it's offered before they know they're hungry . We are a scheduling family as are most of our closest friends. We nearly all wake our babies to eat and all have happy to wake, happy to sleep babies that gain well and STTN by 12 weeks.
