12mth old still wakes for night feed Lock Rss

My 12month old son still wakes for a night feed (bottle/formula feed) - should he still have this feed and how can I get him out of this pattern. He wakes any time between midnight and 3am. Most of the time he goes back down to sleep on his own but twice a week he stays up for about 1 hour and is really difficult to get back to sleep because he is wide awake.

1 year old son

At 6 months a baby should be able to sleep from 7pm to 7am without a feed
It is more likely that he is waking out of habit than hunger.
You would need to perhaps use some settling techniques instead of offering the feed, it is not easy as baby will protest but persistence is the key.
You can get an overview of our settling program from the <a href=" Baby’s Sleep</a> section of the Huggies site or for more detail, and a visual demonstration, from <a href="It&#39;s time to sleep&lt;/a" />It's Time To Sleep</a> DVD&BOOK.
Best of luck
