My son has started to wake at night again, he was sleeping through for months and now has decided he wants to call out for his bottle all hours of the night, luckily it is only once usually and he generally dgoes back to sleep after he is finished, any advice ??

stop with giving him the bottle. He does not need the bottle and you are starting a BAD habit. If he wants something to drink give him a sippy cup with water ONLY! Milk not good for his teeth at night!!!

what's his schedule like (when he wakes for the day, when his nap is and for how long, bedtime) etc? he may be hungry although i don't think that's it if he's suddenly waking. what you can do to ensure that it's not hunger is give him a snack about 30/45mins before bedtime. if he's still waking and calling out for milk, it's not out of hunger. is he eating well during the day?

i wouldn't suggest you give him milk as that could create a night-waking habit. instead go to him, see what's wrong (maybe he woke from something else?), give him a sip of water, tell him "night-night" and then try and see if he'll go back to sleep.

Thank you for your comments, I agree totally, its just a habit he eats very well during the day and usually has a 2 hour sleep after lunch, I will not be giving him milk during the night any more, thanks again :)
