    Dr Jay Gordon has some good advice. You can find his page on google.

    Also, try using your DP to resettle instead of you going in. We found this helped to break the associations of waking and food.

    Plenty of protein at dinner time too, keeps them full for longer.

    Does ur Lo drink out off a cup? when he wakes give him a few sip off water then put the dummy in & a little rock. How much does he drink at night? Are you feeding lots off food/snacks during the day?
    I try to feed my lo lots off dinner & a big bottle before I put him to bed, so he doesn't wake hungry

    He does drink out of a cup, we don't get him out of his cot at night as it wakes him up more. He is also not the type to be rocked or patted, which is why we're in this situation I think, if he wakes he has a bottle to re-settle. I'm sure it's out of habit, he is eating lots and varied solids plus 3-4 200ml bottles during the day. I just gave him his 1st 100ml water and he's straight back to sleep, do you think I should either offer sips from sippy cup or bottle?

    If he drinks the water out off the bottle then do that, ds won't touch water out off a bottle, only cup, which is why I use a cup. I hope the water works for you & lo stops waking for milk at early hours
