My son is just about to turn 1 and still wakes at least once a night. He won’t go back down unless he has boob BUT the problem is, I don’t have much any more since he won’t have any during the day. I’ve tried giving him water, formula (he just refuses it) and just shushing him but he needs to be fed. Most times I can hear his belly grumble! He is small for his age but eats at least 250ml of solids 3 times a day plus water between times. Is there any way that I can get him to sleep through? Or at least only wake once? I’m becoming exhausted with getting up so much and keeping house and studying!¬†How do I get my 1 year old to sleep at night?
