For months now my 8 month old will wake up at least 6 times a night every hour (IF I'm lucky!).. Here's his napping routine during the day. He normally will be awake by 8:30am or earlier. He takes his first nap at 10am-11:30am... Then he will take his second nap of the day from 4pm-5:30pm or 6pm.. But here's the thing.. His napping routine is never the same. But I normally bathe him at 7pm every night and he will usually start yawning and be asleep in his playpen by 8:30pm... He sleeps for 2 hours and then he wakes up.. He treats his sleepin time like its a nap so every night he wakes up to play at around 11pm as it takes me 2 hours to get him to sleep just so he wakes up again to feed. I don't breast feed, I bottle feed. Once before bedtime and every 5 hours at night cause he wakes up for it and it's the only thing that will have him soundly back asleep in under 5 minutes.. Is there any changes I can make to help him stop waking up so much at night?! I can't keep going every night with 3 hours of on and off sleep... Please help me.
