    Hi Fiona, my son is 4 months old and has never slept through the night. He usually is fed between 8-9 pm and will have his ” big” sleep then for 5/6 hours waking usually around 3/4 for a bottle after that he will wake every hour and a half but will fall back asleep usually after a cuddle. I have tried dream feeding at 10/11 pm and even sometimes he wakes for this bottle but still eats during the night. People have suggested introducing food particularly baby rice before bed time so he goes without the bottle at 3/4. Have you any suggestions.. Thank you
