: OK, my 7 1/2mos. old still wakes around 1-2am. every single night for a bottle. IS THIS NORMAL? Should I still be giving in and giving her a bottle every night like this? I cant figure out if she really needs it or if it is just habbit for her.

: Does or has anyone had this with there older babies like this? If so what was the cure?

: Thanks

: Also, her belly is growling when I'm changing her diaper before she eats in the a.m., So I'm kind of assuming she is very hungry.

Hi Jennifer,

I don't have a solution to your problem - infact I am looking for one myself. Arden gets up once a night too - but the worst part is it could be anytime between 11 and 6. It is at a different time each night. This morning he woke up for eating at 5.30 (his last meal yesterday was at 7 PM). I usually do a quick nurse and then he goes back to sleep. So I'm thinking he doesn't need the food because its not like he is terribly hungry. It is more of a habit for him.
