He has always slept right through untill a few months ago we went through some teething pain.
My partners way of getting him back to sleep quickly and quietly was to give him panadol and a bottle of formula.
Now he is in the habbit of waking every night demanding bottles for comfort. If I dont give it to him and tell him to go back to sleep, he screams the house down and will not give up, he can go on for hours.
Giving him the dummy that he gave up a year ago has made no difference and stuffing him full of food all day has not made any difference either.
He often does not even finish the bottles, he seems to have developed a need for a comforter in the form of milk.
Am considering using a controlled crying method which I never had to do with him to get him sleeping through the night before but my parntner refuses to let me do it as he thinks its cruel.
