Still night feeding

Still night feeding

My 1yr old is still waking up 2-3 times a night wanting to feed. He is a big guy and I do hear his tummy growling sometimes. I feed solids close to bedtime but doesn’t seem to make a difference. My doctor doesn’t seem concerned as he is not over weight. Just curious if anyone else has this issue as well.


  1. Lots of 1 year olds still wake at night to feed! It may be a combination of hunger, habit, and the desire for some snuggles with mom. If it’s not a bother for you there is no reason to change it up, but if you do find yourself getting exhausted there are some things you can try to break that night habit. But feel free to nurse on if you enjoy your snuggles!
