Hi Lauren,
You could try dream feeding him at around 10 or 11 at night, or before you go to bed, to see if that hold him till morning.
If you're not sure what I mean by dreamfeeding its just feeding them while they are still asleep. They just need to be alert enough to suck with eyes still closed, no nappy change or anything, then you can just usually lay them straight down afterwards without burping. They will usually take less than a full feed, its just a top up.
I do it if my DD us due to wake up at 12 or 1, to help her sleep a bit longer. Even if she only takes 20-30 mls it will usually carry her through a full 4 hours or more.

My son Josh is nearly 4 months, he was going down for the night between 6 and 7 but waking at 1-2am for a feed, then back down till5-6am. I tried changing his routine and it worked wonders. I now let him nap between 6and 7, I then get him up for a bath and play, then he has his bottle at about 8.30pm, he is in bed at 9 and sleeps till 6am. You can only try and see what works best for you, that's all I did and was lucky it worked. Goodluck.Sandy.
