Post subject: 17 months old and still not sleeping thru the night
My son has only slept thru the night a couple of times. Most nights he wakes around 4 times. It is starting to get me and hubby down as do not know what to do next.
All the hv does is throws cc info at us but we do not want to do that so looks like we r just going to have to cope with him waking. Anyone got any advice? x

I have to agree over the bottles at night. My 1st slept through at 12 weeks. My 2nd it was 14 months. My 3rd was aged 2 and my fourth was nearly 2 and 1/2. It is definitely the milk. My 4th had milk going to bed and every time he woke at night I handed hoping a bottle, more for a bit of peace because he would just go back o sleep whilst drinking it. Then it got to 2 bottles during the night. In the end I knew enough was enough and said no more milk in bed. I offered water but he wouldn't have it so he wasn't thirsty.
I just persevered and after a week he slept through. I feel much better. I also stopped him having afternoon naps.
