I have the same problem with my daughter she is turning to on the 21st of this month. She has never slept a whole night she always wakes up at least once for milk. Ignoring her does nothing but cause her to cry more. When she does wake up I just give her some more milk and leave the room. She will drink it and then fall asleep but it still happens every night, she has not grown out of it. Sorry that I can not help but if someone has any advice I would really appreciate it also.

I have 4 girls and with everyone of them I have had to give them a bottle about as thick as a milkshake at night! I would have to slit the nipple so it could come out easy.I would use their milk or formula, then add baby ceral, oatmeal, or rice(whatever you give your baby) and then about a half jar of baby fruit, mix it up with a knife and then let them have the whole bottle (filled to the top) right before bed. Doctors said not to do it, but it was the only thing that satified their hunger for the night, and their weight has been fine! Hope this helps!

give him a bottle and let him go back to sleep on his own eventually he will grow out of it i wouldn't worry unless he is 18 months or older and still does it on a regular basis

I don't know that this will work with all kids but when I wanted to get my then 10 month old to go longer at night and gradually phase out the 3 am feed I added a small meal of baby rice or cereal later at night; maybe 9 or 10 o clock, before settling her for the night in her crib. This seemed to mean she was not so hungry and could sleep for longer. I know have a 4 month old who has been sleeping 8 hours a night since birth! I know it won't last forever so I'm not bragging!!
