May be give her some rusk with her feed(milk),or baby rice.
I found this with riley like most the girls here we gave a night time feed(extra dinner)to fill them up a little more.

Yep, Riley was on rusk and milk(breast milk) at 10wks,he was a hungry baby.
I no HV say not to do this but most are quite happy for you to do it and will help with info. My HV was with me all the way,she had been doing it for 40+yrs and was well with the times.
In time you will see alot of the others on here posting on how young they started feeds. Its not weaning,not in a sense but somthing to full them up a little.

Hi Dee. Does your baby sleep well during the day? My little girl is 21 weeks old now and she slept through the night for a few weeks at around 12 weeks and then start to wake again and still does. However, she sleeps really well during the day and she goes to sleep earlier in the evening so her routine is just shifted a little, still doing six or seven hours in one go but she starts earlier than before. I am convinced it will sort itself out and as it is not doing me or her any harm I am content to let her carry on as she is.
I do need to start thinking about weaning but that is another story...

It sounds to me like she is having a growth spurt and will probably even herself out again!
My little girl was onto baby rice at 12 weeks but that was because she could get through 4 or 5 6oz bottles in a night!! And this was most nights, not just once or twice! She had a 3am feed until about 6 or 7 weeks ago when suddenly she dropped it and started sleeping through! I tried giving her something to fill her up before bed but it didn't work! She still wanted her milk!!!
