has he reached a new milestone? i know every time my son learned to do something new (ie, roll, sit up, walk) he would go through a period of night waking. the first time he did this i would go in each time he woke, but then it did become just a habit to wake...i stopped going in and after a couple of nights he stopped waking up. each time he had a period of waking after that i just left him alone (unless he began screaming) and he would be asleep within minutes again.

if you are picking him up because he is awake don't. this could be a really bad habit for him and for you if you're not getting enough sleep through the night. the majority of parents I have talked to say their children would sleep through the night after 3-4 months and hasn't changed. My girls sleep 8-6 every night. if they wake up I just double check their diapers are not wet and let them be.

Try cutting down on the bottles and giving him more food especially at tea time. Before bed try giving him a rusk or something to take him through the night. When he does wake do not take him out of bed. Check his nappy and make sure that he is not crying because of teething pain and then leave him to self soothe. If you take him out of bed every night when he wakes you are rewarding him for waking up as he has 100% of your attention. You need to take that away and let him grumble his way back to sleep. If there is no reward he is unlikely to wake up after three nights of no rewards. Once he has learnt that mummy is not coming to get him you will find that he sleeps much better. Good luck
