And he is waking in the night at between 1 n 3am hysterical and I end up giving him a bottle then every morning were downstairs awake at 4-5am?

  • An interesting question. I wonder how you broke this circle !

  • I note this was posted a couple of years ago and I hope all is well with your son.

  • I am in the same position. It can get very tiring. I have to give a bottle before bed and he will only sleep with me and hubby. He always wakes screaming and most times cannot be consoled. Hes gone off food he will only snack and gone off his favs like pasta and chicken breast. All i do is cook different things all day not sure what to do.

  • At 14 months they really are still only into finger food usually and if not eating enough a bottle is probably needed during the night because they are hungry. Maybe try a bottle before bed and keep it to finger foods. It may also be time to try some new foods as your child could be getting board with the old toast and porridge?!

  • Hope he get better now and you can talk to your local baby clinic about that. They can give you great advice.

  • Hope he is eating and sleeping for you now.

  • My son did this at about the same age and it was a lingering ear infection…

  • how is he going now?

  • How is he going now?

  • How is he going now?
