I'd be careful with phenergan too as there is evidence that it can cause breathing to slow and breathing difficulties in under 2 year olds... I did a lot of research on it when my DS1's Paed prescribed it for severe sleep issues at 18 months and I decided against using it.

I 'demand feed' but he never asks for it.
I feed him when he wakes (day and night) feed him just before he goes to sleep (although he's awake when I put him down) and I feed in between randomly when I think he's hungry.
Maybe that's my problem.
This was my night
I've never ever had a night where it was every hour, almost to the minute
I didn't feed all those times, I don't remember when I fed, but I have both breasts just in case which made no difference.
I tried sticking the dummy in every time to settle him and also rock his bassinet. That only worked about 2/3 times but if it did then he would wake in 30 mins anyway wanting a feed or to be rocked again.

Yeah I did the research too but DS would wake up to 5 times an hour all night so I decided to try it the thing is that it works for the start of the night but past 11pm it doesnt anymore. They originally started him on it in hospital with an apnoea machine on him but at home we dont have that so I was a bit weary they have to wean him off it thats why he is still on it

Your horrible night was also one of my worse ones a couple weeks ago.
Since I've started the schedule there's only been one night where he's woken 3 rather than 2 times and that was because I couldn't get him to have the second breast so he woke an hour later for it. Again I don't know if it's a coincidence, maybe he was coming out of it anyways.
Last night he did 6.30-1am and then 5.30. It's 6.30 right now and he's asleep (wish I was but I can never fall back asleep after 5.30).
@SAgirl I forgot to add that if he wakes between 5 and 6am only give him one side and save the other for 7. You want to try to ensure he's having his biggest feed at 7am.
