My ds is goig to be one on the 23... I thought by now he would e sleeping through the night and of course he is not... I don't lay him down till almost 9. I usually try and feed him dinner around 7:30 or 8. And than when he goes To bed i usually give him two bottle a formula rice bottle and a slow milk bottle if he is still hungry after formula bottle... My problem is he still wakes up crying like ten to twelve times throughout the night... Sometimes I have to make a milk bottle just to get him back to sleep.... Is this normal??? I thought he would be sleeping through the night...any advice would be appreciated thanks mommas... And just to throw it in there I am 38 weeks pregnant with a little girl and due any day now... I jut want to get this under control so I am not completely exhausted from beig up all night win both of them lol.... Thanks again

Completely normal. My ds didn't start sleeping through the night until he was 16-17 months old.

I wouldn't be able to sleep if I were stuffed like a thanksgiving turkey every night either.
They do it when they're ready. It's as simple as that. :)

Try giving the bottle earlier and moving bedtime to 8. Also have a consistent bedtime routine and only one bottle. He's probably over tired and way too full.

Sounds like you overfeed him before bed and has a tummy ache.

Not sleeping through the night at that age is still normal though.  My daughter slept through the night at 8 months but my son did not until 13 months.

My 3 year old doesn't sleep through the night consistently, nor does my 5 month old. You adapt. It will be okay.

Sounds like you give him waaaaay to much food before bed. He should have dinner a little earlier then only a small formula bottle not even a lot. Def doesn't need the rice cereal!!!' His belly is probably hurting him. but yes it's completely normal my dd turned 2 in August & stared sleeping through the night a couple months ago. She still has nights where she wakes up several times. Some babies just don't sleep. Not much you could do but I would def try not feeding him so much

10-12 times a night has never been normal! And I don't understand why they are making the comments about over feeding him, besides it just being a rude way to say something, it doesn't seem to make sense given that you said you only give him more of he is still hungry. Just ignore any haters.

So, onto your problem, has he always woken up a lot at night or is this new? Also, do you have someone to help with the nighttime routine? At 38 weeks you need good sleep, mama! I am so sorry you are going through this. ((hugs))
