hi maree, my baby boy is 7 and a half months old and is 100% reliant on having a breast feed before sleeping - my mistake, I know!! It was all that worked when he was younger and for that reason i stuck with it. Trouble is, he is now teething and waking an average of four times a night. Each time, he requires a top up to go back down. During the day, i manage to get him to have two one hour sleeps (only by offering him the breast first) i cant continue to feed him four times during the night - my milk supply is depleted as it is and i have started him on two bottles during the day. i have tried controlled crying. he becomes hysterical beyond comforting. after an hour, i abandon the idea. what can i do??
