Worked wonders for me to. within a week he seemed more settled in between feeds and went from waking about 5 times in the night to just once then within a month he slept through. Gives him minging poo though!

What is comfort milk? Is that one formula feed before bed?
My little Eva is only 8days so want to give it a bit more time but if she doen't start to sleep more I'd consider it as there is only so long I can cope with Zero sleep! Worried though if I do that she'll get too much of an appetite for it and start refusing boob?There's so much conflicting advice Suspect

We tried it, and it kind of works, she has stopped (touch wood) waking between going to bed and one oclock feed. So its not really helping her sleep more, but she is happier

Its not really to make them sleep more!
Its more to help with belly aches and colic!
Its gentler on the tum and thicker so they take down less wind! Very Happy

Chick are you meaning the goodnight milk??

Ben has been on Aptamil easy digest. It did take him a few days to settle on it, but he was much happier on it. It helped his wind & stopped him from being so colicky. It does give them explosive nappies but IMO it was worth it.

they say in the first 6 weeks its good not to introduce a bottle to avoid nipple confusion, and it interrupting your supply. though the choice is yours.

in those early days with BF, they really do seem to be 24/7 with no difference between day and night. The constant suckling is to help you establish your supply. Its so tiring but it will settle down and she will sleep more! Personally I would try not to disrupt this natural process by introducing formula in the hope she will sleep more as a) there is no guarantee this will help her sleep more, as Lea said comfort milk is more to help with wind and digestion than sleeping and b) formula has a different make up (I think maybe acidity levels?) to breastmilk so it might in fact unsettle her more as her stomach has adjusted to makeup of BM. Also, their tummies are so tiny at this age that its normal for them to wake often as breastmilk is so easily digested. I found by two weeks Kai had settled down much more and was waking far less in the night.

If your finding it really difficult have you thought about co-sleeping in these early days? That way you can just pop her on boob and you can sleep in between while she suckles. I found this a lifesaver at some points when I was just so tired.

good luck with the BF! it does get better and you will get more sleep!!

I put lyla on it and it was brilliant! I was up the wall using infacol, colief, dr browns bottles and in the end the formula worked.
she has always been more content on the comfort.

I would agree about the formula not making them sleep through - their tummies are so tiny they still need little and often and my FF fed baby certainly didn't sleep through properly until well after about 6 months.
