Kia ora Maree my name is Krishna i have 4 children all who are boys. My youngest son Mondaeo is 20 months old he started sleeping throught out the night when he was 3 months old now he gets up at least 2-3 times a night sometimes asking for a bottle and sometimes just crying for no reason, i am due with our 5th baby in June 2009. My question is how can i get him into that routine of sleeping thoughout the night again?

Answer: Hi Krishna, Firstly make sure he goes to sleep in his bed on his own initially, then you need to stop offering the bottle if he wakes. Keep putting him straight back to bed and let him know it`s time to sleep and leave. Cheers, Maree
