So I have a 5 month old who sleeps in a sidecar cot on the side of our bed.
He wakes maybe 3-4 times during the night and some of those times are for his 4 hourly feeds, the problem is that when he wakes for a feed he NEVER drinks the whole bottle, he'll have maybe half or a third and we are wasting formula. He will fall asleep after he's had that much.
I am starting to wonder if he's not actually hungry but just waking out of habit, and because he's sleeping next to me.
I'm not sure.
What are your experiences? I was told he should be sleeping through by now, he often will have proper food before bed as well.
