He won't sleep through the night anymore!?!

My 7 month old son has slept through the entire night for 4 months now. But the last 4 nights he has woken up 3 times wanting a bottle! What's the deal with this??? Any advise to get him back to sleeping all night?

  • my son has done this a few times now, i just give him more solid food and tank him up as much as he can eat before he goes to sleep that usually does the trick, you can also let him CIO if you want to

  • Growth spurt, if he needs a bottle. You're not going to force him to sleep through the night no matter what you do. If he's waking up hungry, deal with it - give him a bottle and put him back to bed. If he's not chugging it down like he's hungry, then have his ears checked - unusual waking can be a sign of an ear infection.

  • Maybe I should have his ears checked because I only make an once and he falls back to sleep right away. Thanks ladies.

  • he could be having a growth spurt, or some problem like sore ears or throat. good luck!
