My 13.5mo gal is still waking up twice a night to drink!! Anyone facing same situation? She used to drop off to once a night but this past week she has been waking up twice a day.. so many babies have slept through the bight but mine is still waking up like a newborn to drink :( I do give her dinner and a little snack and milk before bedtime.. When she wakes up at night she can finish a bottle of 135ml! I thought maybe she is just thirsty but it seems like she is hungry or is she just drinking out of habit? What should I do?

It could be her comfort. There is nothing wrong with it. It's normal dear. Be patient. my boy used to wake up thrice a night at that age.

hmm depends on the childs. as I have 2 boys . 1 really super milk king . always want milk . even in the middle of the night will wake up for milk till the age of 2 plus or 3year old still the same . maybe it a habit or the milk urge . but my 2nd child last feed 11 +pm . he will sleep thru the night till like 6 am then wake up .i did try to wake him up but he just refuse . but as long if they wan milk . i will still prepare and let them drink even during the night . cos i believe my kids benefits all the nutrition from the milk they are drinking . ☺

Hmm my gal sleeps around 10 and wakes up once around 3-4 to drink. But sometimes she will wake up at 2 and then 5am again to drink. She is a small eater in the day and rejects food even if I give her more.guess she is one of those babies take small quantity but many meals sigh

My 7 and a half months old boy is big size. He was having twice in e middle of e nite from newborn to almost 6 months old. After tat, he dropped to once in e middle of e nite. Few days ago, i realized he did not wanna drink milk anymore cos when i woke up in e middle of e nite to feed, he oni suck a few mouths & refused to drink! Happened for a 2 consecutive nites! Wasted e milk! So i stopped feeding him since he didnt make any noise at all. Sleeping thru e nite now. I hv many frenz who says tat their baby started slping thru e nite earlier. I oso heard tat there are babies who still need nite feedings after 18 months old. I was actually wondering when will my baby slp thru e nite and well! It really depends on baby. Hopefully yours will slp thru e nite soon! Jiayou!!

Really depends on the child. My elder was a milk monster. He would drink 12oz before bed time. One way is increase the dinner portion. 1-2hrs before bed, give another snack time then milk before bed.

Depends on the child. Cause my no1 & no2 is different. If ur girl has big appetite not much you can do. The fact that she can finish the bottle means she hungry.
