RJS MOM - March 29

My son is 9 months and he still doesnt sleep soundly thru the night. He goes down around 8pm, then starts fussing around 11pm, then again at 2am, then at 5am and usually at 5 i have to give him a bottle because he SCREAMING! The other times i'll give him his binky and he'll fall right back to sleep. After his 5am bottle, he goes right back to sleep until 8am. How do i get him to stop wanting that 5am bottle?? I've tried letting him cry for 5 and even 10 mins...nothing seems to work! any sugguestions???

You could try delaying it buy 5 minutes every few days. So the first 2-3 days, you let him wait 5 minutes. After like 3 days, or whenever he seems to be used to it, let him wait another additional 5 minutes, etc...

I have also seen some suggestions about giving water in the feed you want to cut out. After a few days they are supposed to decide it is not worth it. I have never tried this so I don't know if it really works. Can you make his last feeding of the night a bit later so he goes later in the morning?
