  5. 21 month old still wakes between 2 to 5 times a night

21 month old still wakes between 2 to 5 times a night Lock Rss

My 21 month old son still continues to wake during the night and will not go to sleep without a bottle. I am due for my second one in 13 wks time and need to break this habit. He also refuses to leave his cot, i tried him a few times in a bed and he would continually get up & not sleep.
Hi,
Please accept my apologies for the delay in responding to your query.

It sounds like your son has become dependent on the bottle as his sleep association.
You would need to stop the bottle and get him to fall asleep on his own so when he wakes on his light sleep he is not looking for the bottle to resettle.
As for the bed, don’t rush it. We made a big deal about my son looking forward to having a big bed on his 3rd birthday and he was so excited.
I hope this helps
Cheers Maree
