Post subject: Sleepless Nights
I would like some advice. My son is 17 months old. He wakes up constantly at night. He no longer uses a dummy and wants his bottle when he wakes up, he still drinks 2 bottels out at night.
Could somebody please give me advise how to get him to sleep through. I am working full time, I need to get him to sleep through now.
Any advice will be appreciated.

Does he have milk at night? If so, maybe water the 'in the middle of the night feeds' down so it eventually becomes water, so he can then just have a bottle to help himself to, rather than relying it on as a feed. A biscuit / snack just before bed may also mean he won't wake up hungry, if that is the case, rather than routine.
Good luck, I am sure others will have other suggestions which may work for you. Some children don't sleep through until they are much older, although as a working mum I know that it is hard to have to balance.
