So What Is A Dream Feed Anyway?

May 24, 2018

I get asked this question all the time!!!

A dream feed means different things to different people. But generally speaking, it is a term used for a late night feed, usually between 10 pm and midnight. Baby  is offered a bottle when he is still essentially asleep, and will take a feed, without coming fully awake. Baby is fed in the dark, without being unswaddled, no diaper change, right before parents go to bed. It is a means to top up baby's tummy in the hope that they will sleep longer. It does work in some cases, but can back fire on you. I have met some babies who have come to expect that feed every night, and start waking for it. For some families it's a life saver, and if it works for you, do it. But I do get calls from families all the time looking for help in breaking the habit of older babies who are now so used to that feed, that they are waking up, looking for it.
When I am hired to sleep train, I leave a family with a baby sleeping 11-12 hrs a night, by 10-12 weeks old, who goes down for the night  between 7 and 8pm, and needs no pacifier, no swaddle, and no sleep prop such as rocking, to get to sleep.
