Hmm.. this is a tricky one.. as my little one doesn't need to eat to fall asleep.. I assume if you get in this situation.. that you could do a few things.. one.. feed them normally, but try and try to keep them awake after a feeding. We did this from the start.. we would keep Monroe awake post feeding at LEAST 30-60 minutes.. when he was tiny, 30 minutes would do, but as he got older.. we kept stretching it. That way.. they realize that bottle doesn't mean nap time and they would stop correlating that to naptime!
