My 14 month old still wakes up at 2.00 - 4.00 in the morning for a bottle and I have tried to cut down the amount of milk I give her but she goes into hysterics and knows that I haven't given her the "right amount". Her room is right next to ours and my husband does shift work so I hate to wake him with her crying so It is easier just to give her the bottle as she goes straight back to sleep but I am 3 months pregnant and am dying to get a full nights sleep before the 3 hour feeds start up again. Has anyone have any good tips of how they got their baby/ies to sleep through the night without the drama?

My son was very much the same way. I started to dilute his nighttime feeding, making it with just a bit more water than formula so they were getting fewer calories. They still feel "full" because it is the same amount of liquid. But this less amount of calories forces them to take in a bit more calories during the daytime.
I did it slowly, and it worked rather well. Good luck!
