    Default Nearly two and still wakes at night...

    My son is nearly two and he wakes every single night without fail screaming for bottle.. I’ve tried to let him cry it out and comfort him so he can learn to get to sleep without bottle but it seems impossible.. any tips for this tired mama?

    Might seem like a silly question, but is the bottle full of milk? If so, could you gradually water it down until its just water and then he can just have a bottle of water with him in bed and then he wont need to wake you? Maybe its just the bottle is a comfort thing?

    My 2nd was like this (first slept through from 8 weeks!) but magically started sleeping through pretty much right on 2yo. I don't definitely know why, but looking at how much he would eat compared to his big sister, he has a big appetite and I think he genuinely needed that milk. He's a very fussy eater and at that age getting protein into him was hard. I had to really just not stress about trying to vary his diet and just focus on getting a volume of food into him.
