DS is having a bronchoscope tomorrow morning so I can't feed him after midnight tonight because of the general, he has dinner at 6 and then is in bed for the night. He may not go in for the general till 11am! It suggests waking the child in the brochure to give them something to eat so they are not so hungry the next morning. Here is my issue, DS has been off the bottle for 2 months and I was thinking of giving him a bottle with some pediasure in it at 9:30-10 tonight in hopes that it will stop him from being too hungry... Do you think he will remember that one bottle? He has sept through for a long time so I am not worried so much about night waking but I just really want to know what others would do? Or
If this is a good idea? I know that he won't take the milk from his avent cup any other suggestions? Or is a bottle just this once a good idea?

Thats what I would do.
No way my DS would eat anything if woken in the night but a bottle he would take for sure.
Just this once won't hurt I wouldn't think?

Ds is nearly 13 months, if it were him I'd give him a once off bottle. Ds would not eat food in the middle of the night! He's having a general and then recovery period so I doubt he'd be focussing on that one bottle days later.
Goodluck, I hope the procedure goes well.

I did this with my DS who was about 18 months at the time. We only "just" woke him and gave him his sippy cup (as we had no bottles as he had been off them for 6 months). He drank it rolled back over and went to sleep!
I would suggest taking a bottle with you to the surgery as well as it can be a comfort thing after they wake up. We did not for his first but took his sippy cup for his second and it was well worth it.
Good luck with it.
