My 8.5month old still wakes up about 2-3times at night for a bottle. I've tried rocking her, holding her and walking around forever, putting her in my bed just to see if she just wants me there, pacifier!! as soon as it falls out her mouth she cries, kinda everything except cold turkey, to get her off the bottle. I just read that you should put water in the babies bottle at night to break her milk routine. Soon she will get tired of having water and it wont be worth waking up for. Has anyone ever tried this or no someone who has? Ill call the pedi tomorrow to see if i get an answer but was curious if it worked for someone else. My little one is 25% for weight and height so the doc says shes just small for her age (skinny) but shes gaining weight so i guess shes eating enough for her during the day. I'd like to get atleast 6hours of sleep at night because I dont see her growing out of this...soo tired!!
