I wasn't sure whether this was a sleeping or feeding question but figured I'm after advice on how to settle bub instead of feeding him so thought I'd put it in this section.
DS is 8 months old and usually wakes up once a night between midnight and 3am for a feed. Over the last couple of months (since he went onto solids) I've been trying to reduce the amount of this feed in the hope of getting him to sleep right through the night. We are now down to 80mL. I've tried reducing it further but he just doesn't settle and will cry and grumble for hours if he doesn't get it. He has had 3 nights where he has slept right through (several weeks ago) so I know he can do it but he's just not wanting to now.
We also have an issue in that he is rolling from back to front in his sleep but can't roll back so wakes up distressed and needs rescuing. This usually happens 1-3 times a night and again he seems to only settle with some food.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how I can settle DS instead of giving him a feed. He's never been a fan of rocking and I've tried a dummy, singing, patting, night light, letting him try to self-settle.
Or should I just let him decide when to drop the feed and start sleeping through? Any idea when this might happen? I'd love to not have to get up to DS when we bring our next bub home in August!
