Hi Aastha, instead of offering him breast milk, give him formula milk from a bottle. if he drinks it and sleeps well, then it could show hunger or otherwise it is just a habit of sucking for comfort that you will need to break him out of.

All I can say is good luck. Try whatever everyone suggests. But it may or may not work. Wait for some 6 months - 1 year and probably u will get rest at night :)

But now, as he's grown up, keeps running the whole day to get tired and also I made him say no to breastfeed. Now, the duration of continous sleep has been increased to approx 3-3. 5 hours

Hi Aastha, same had been the situation with my 2. 5 years old. He used to do so while he was 2. But I had no other option than to breastfeed him because he used to cry a lot if I would have denied him for breastfeeding.

Hi Aastha, he could be waking up because 1) he is hungry. Try and give him something heavy to eat before bedtime so that he is well satiated. 2) maybe when he wakes up and suckles, he is not getting enough breastmilk to satisy his hunger. so it may be time for you to wean him off. hope this helps

Hi Aastha. It seems as if your son has become habitual about waking up or his tummy isn't getting full. Since he's 11 months already you must have introduced him other foods such as khichdi, fruits, etc as well... try setting his timetable. When he wakes up in the nite you may breastfeed him once or so. When he cries try singing to him or cuddling him up or patting him as well... initially it may seem difficult to adapt to it buy you will have to be strict and try to chart out his timetable. You could also make him do activities running around or any physical activities due to which he may tire and want to sleep. Hope this works.
