I am so hoping that you all might be able to help me. I have a near 11month old very active little boy who in recent times has taken a liking to waking several times during the night and can only be soothed with a feed (not an ideal situation).
I am not a huge fan of letting them cry it out (as Trescillian has recommended) and given that he shares a room with his 4 year old sister - this is not an ideal option. My daughter was never like this which gives a great example of nature vs nurture. I am in the process of cutting bottles down to 1 full in morning, 2 halves during the day and trying to offer a full at night - however he doesn't want all of the bed time one and then wakes again a few hours later and wants it then. Have tried offering several meals in the later part of the day to assist in filling him up but again with little positive result.
Needless to say all these interupted nights are starting to take their toll on our patience levels and our family life is starting to suffer.
I am open to any and all suggestions!!
