Help me please! Night feeding

Stella - posted on 02/01/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




My son is 14 months old and he still wakes up pretty much all night. He goes to bed at 730 and then he wakes up at 1,3,430and 6am. He always want to have his bottle. I don't want to let him cry. Any advice? I can't wait to sleep through the night.... I tried to give him water instead of milk but he will complain and cry.. He doesn't like pacifiers :-/ he only takes his bottle and fall back to sleep.

At his age he really does not need a bottle at night and is possibly getting too much milk at night to eat well during the day. It is also harmful to his teeth to give milk in the middle of the night. Unless you change the habit nothing will change. He may cry at first but once he realizes that the crying does not get him what he wants he will stop. The waking is not due to hunger instead it is due to habit.
