my son wasw such a he did it seemed was eat.  he did the same thing .......he would wake up and eat and eat .....I think it was more in my a degree...i actuallly just cut some of the bottles out and just cuddled him back to sleep......I dont know if you have tried this ...but it is worth it.......cause I am pretty sure I caused some of that problem myslef by giving in all the time.....he sleeps so well now ...and it only took bout 5-7 days to get him to give it up .....but not without a cost ..because i did have to have a couple of teeth to have fixed ..because that milk on the teeth is so hard on them!!!!   when someone told me to do this ...i just thought there was no way ..,,,but it wasnt as hard as i thought it would be....

good luck whatever you decide...

try diluting his formula! If he has 6ounces milk 6 onces of water dilute it down to 5 scoops 6 water for a couple of days then 4 scoops  6 water and so forth till he is on just water he wil get bored of the taste and stop waking for it!

if ur son is bottle fed just reduce the amount u give him by a ounce each nite or give him water
