  • He should be ready to give a bottle with cereal mixed in it. It will fill him up and likely sleep through the night

  • All of my kids have always woken up in the middle of the night at least once for a whole year. It's normal. And if it doesn't bother you, then just let it be. Nothing to worry about. I even tried the cereal in the bottle, and it didn't work for us!

  • My daughter just turned 11months and just started sleeping thru the night. Since January we have been getting up at 3 am for a bottle. I tried keeping her up later, giving her a bottle right before bed. Didn't matter, she could eat at 4 pm , fall asleep by 7, up at 3. she could have a bottle at 7, sleep, still up at 3. she outgrew it, Now she is in bed around 8 and sleeps til 7. She's my last one, so i learned to enjoy and savor our nightly meeting!!
