His tummy has to start getting used to going for longer stretches as night. Keep in mind that he is probably WANTING more than NEEDING the nutrition. I did the following which helped a lot: My LO used to wake at night to feed (at this point it was bottle). I gave him one ounce less every night, and then started diluting the formula until it was just water. After a few nights he just woke up for that sip of water, and a few nights later he stopped waking up at all. I hope this is helpful; the same things don't always work for different babies, but it's worth the try...

I would suggest letting him cry it out he may just be in the habit of waking up then being fed ... Give his dinner and milk before bed and you know he is full

Feed him a heavy hot dinner. U may have to change his diaper in the middle of the night but he won't be hungry and he will sleep better.

Make sure he is eating well during the day. At his age he should not be needing any food in the middle of the night. Make sure he is not waking out of habit. I would suggest not feeding him in the middle of the night....try other ways of soothing him.
