Took the 4oz milk bottle from my newly 2 yr old. Yes, yes, he is 2 and still got a bottle to sleep, creating the monster. Now I know better with the 10 month old baby. Well this is night number 3 and he is still in crazy mode. Although quieting some, been almost 20 minutes now. We did give him the milk in a cup the last 2 nights/days and he refused it. It leaked all over everything. I came to the decision he is going to learn to get to sleep on his own, as I am not dealing with this crap again when the cup is then gone. He still wakes once or 2x a night still! He has to learn to put himself back to sleep. The 10 month old sleeps better than him. Did your LO literally throw themself into the wall, climb the wall, bang their heads on the bedframe or wall, throw themself around like a crazy person, all over their soother being taken away? What's the longest it lasted? Am I a dreamer that he will sleep all night in a couple weeks?

I breastfed my children and they nursed to sleep and at night when they were 2. It's normal for children to breastfeed at night and to wake to breastfeed until they are 3 or older. My 23 mo breastfed grandson is still waking to breastfeed twice at night.
The problem is you can't let a child bottle feed at night, it rots their teeth. Artificial feeding and making babies and toddlers sleep alone is a recent experiment and we don't know what all the consequences are. I can't imagine letting my child bang their head on the wall and scream at night.
