7 month old waking up every 3 hours.

We just moved so I'm assuming it's because of that. He was waking up just once in the middle of the night. Since the move it's been every 3 - 4 hours. (so about 3 times a night now). How do I break him of this? I've tried just rocking him back to sleep but he cries and screams and wants a bottle....I really don't want this to be a habit of his. Help!!

Its probaly because he is in an unfamiliar place.you could do the cio method.let him cry himself to sleep and if you arent already put one scoop of baby rice in his bottle just before bed.it will make him fuller that way he wont wake up hungry.he is old enough to do cio method

My son really loved his bottle too for a long period of time. I gave it to him up until 13 months. It was sort of a comfort thing for him to have it with him at night and it helped him relax. When he was ready to stop using it he did. Otherwise, i would try putting a sippy cup that he really likes in the crib with him with water in it. Just in case he gets thirsty. at 7 months i dont think the bottle will become a habit, hes too young to not have it yet
