He falls asleep great in his cot, however he wakes 2 - 3 times a night

Hi Maree,
My third child is 8 months old. I did controlled crying with my first two children. Jacob (baby) falls asleep great in his cot, however he wakes 2 - 3 times a night. I settle him each time with his dummy but when it gets to about 3 o`clock I just give him the bottle. I know he shouldn`t be drinking a bottle at his age, but I am afraid that he is just hungry??? What should I do?? I am so tired!
Kind regards,
Amelia Z

Answer: Hi Amelia, Try incorporating a 10pm rollover feed as this will give you confidence later when he wakes that he has had a feed and you can go straight into settling techniques. You can get details for our settling program from the website. Cheers, Maree
