Bottle Feeding?!?!

Well, the time came...Wyatt had his first bottle. (this happened a little over a week ago, I am posting late) We (I) waited a little over 4 weeks before we gave him a bottle. Breastfeeding is going wonderful but I know there may come a time when I can't be with him every 3 hours. I want him to at least be familiar with a bottle. It wasn't bad, you could tell it wasn't his preference but he drank 3.5 oz!!!! We have a pretty great schedule and last week it was kinda getting rough in the night. I have to preface though when I say rough I mean he woke up before his 3 hour mark to eat. Wyatt usually eats between 9-10 pm and then it's bedtime. He has been sleeping until about 3am. When I would breastfeed him at this hour he would keep falling asleep, I would struggle to stay awake...in return he would wake again in less than 3 hours. I started pumping or even using some milk I had frozen and giving him a bottle at this hour. It worked PERFECT! He takes anywhere between 3-4 oz at this feeding and sleeps until 6-7am! So far this has worked like a charm....:)
