Milk consumption during the night.
Second post from me today! Sorry!! We are in a right pickle!! My almost 14 month old is struggling at night. Amongst the settling difficulties and tears he wakes up and cry’s for milk (he’s not thirsty as he has plenty of fluids during the day and has been eating well) I’ve tried settling other ways but he is frantic for milk. I believe he is in desperation to get to sleep but he is reliant on milk, this means many many wake ups and a number of bottles (far too many for his age), nappy rash is the worst it’s been as he’s has loose stools from teething). 2 nappy changes during the night too. Any tips on reducing the amount of milk other than, giving a little less gradually and watering it down. I know it’s catch 22 as he needs to learn to settle himself so he’s not having these wake ups / wanting milk or that’s the dream. He’s always been a tricky sleeper!!
