Stalking this thread as my LO wakes up all night too. And it has become a habit to get a bottle. Not sure how to brwak him from that.
We used this same theory for stopping Tobi's night BF... Which was half the issue with his sleeping!
We went cold turkey, and within 2 nights, he was o longer waking for feeds!! This was at 11 months this time.
Some say it is cruel to stop entirely.... But I know how stubborn he was and is... And it was the best way for us.
Have you tried reducing the amount or replacing with water??
Really pleased things are going well, it's such a relief when they do. As the others have said the crying will get less and less and it will be as if there was never an issue in the first place. Rhys sleeps like an absolute dream now..touch wood ;-) xxxx
we did it with my daughter when she was 8-9 months old, and it worked fine...
then again here in january it was hard for her... family was in town, i had hyperemesis until 4 weeks ago, she spent 3 dif. times with my parents who live 6 hrs away (i was too weak to take care of her due to pregnancy), my husband had been gone a lot (navy) we moved jan 1 ... so there was crazy things going on dec/jan., my daughter started wanting her dad with her when she falls asleep. we do let her cry it out again, unless it is a stressful or long day
she is in a toddler bed, so she just comes to the living room, which makes it more difficult, then when she was in a crib... it was hard. harder for husband then me, when she was young, but it worked perfect
