nite feeds

thanks to all your well wishes, ellisa is now back to her milk guzzling self, she is able to down 5-6 bottles of 6 oz of milk in one nite...the milk company is laughing all the way to the bank!

any mommies can tell me (advice please) how can i stop this “owlish” nite feeds that ellisa still craves…she’s almost gonna be 2 and those nite cravings are still there!! I give her at least 12 oz of milk before she knock out every nite…

if I am lucky she will wake up at 6ish for a feed, on my unlucky nite (last nite to be exact…memory still very fresh and brain very dead from lack of oxygen and precious sleep), was woken up at 1ish….cry…let her cry….cry cry cry…then no choice asked her…you want nen nen?...she says ‘I want nen nen’…ok, daddy was awake by now, so he made and mommy fed her…we all slept happily after tat…full stomach….

then 5 or 6ish (man…when its so cool and mind is so far away in lala land)….cry cry cry…ignore her…cry cry cry…daddy already suffering from sleep apnea…compounded with ellisa cries…practically no need to sleep la…daddy was fuming and irritated…shouted at ellisa…she stopped (wah peace!!) then few seconds later…whimpering…louder and louder…cry cry cry…daddy shouted again plus threaten to throw her out the room, ellisa stopped all her cries…then cleverly say “I want nen nen”…whimpering like so pitiful…erika was fully awake now from all the commotion (poor girl, even she is affected) so daddy grumpily made ellisa a bottle, she drank all…was happy girl now.

then mommy went to the loo…daddy said to ellisa.. “u better come here and say sorry”…ellisa went over to daddy, hugged him, kiss him and say “sollliiiee dadddiiii” in the sweetest most apologetic angelic voice, and with those sad eyes...

forgive & forget la...that is until tonite!! see how la.

5-6 bottle of milk in 1 nite?!?!

WOW... that is scary. Maybe you can get the milk company do some sponsorship or something. haha.

Mommy to Chumsy said...

12oz before she sleeps and she still ask for more later??? Gee....I wish Ashley is like that. She stopped drinking milk when she was 8 mths old. Now I force her by spoon-feeding. 3 x 8oz a day. Sad!

How about giving her water - coz she's probably just thirsty? Worth a shot

I can understand.. when Ryan was younger, he woke up 2-3 times a nite for mum-mum. I wonder he did that jus for fun or really hungry. Hmm.. if really cant get rid of the habit, then invest in a few warmers, so next time she can go take the nen-nen herself?

Boy am i glad both my gals hv been weaned off nite feeds for a long time di. Alycia used to wake up for her nite feeds too at around Ellisa's age. I couldnt tahan anymore fr the sleep deprivation & just gave her the cold turkey... gotta be really cold hearted. Voila it worked.
