Did you just go cold turkey for night feeds and offer water? I'm at a loss for DS. Thanks

Subbing. Almost 14 month old DS has approximately 600 bottles a day and overnight too!

Watering down is a good idea Monnie. I was just trying to reduce the quantity every few weeks by 50ml. I'll give that a go!

I wouldn't water it down, as you are still filling them up, you need to get them used to going without, so just reduce the volume till its next to nothing, they need to get used to sleeping with an 'empty' tummy, I've been weaning my 9 month old & she hasn't had a bottle over night for a week, I still have to settle with the dummy but that is getting less & less.
