hi... u can give him a heavy dinner n if needed before sleep feed him milk dn he may not feel hungry... if he still wakes up in night dn u can offer him water to drink n be patient n spend some time to make him sleep comfortably without feeding... u may hav to struggle for some nights later they stop feeding at night..

children often wake up at night due to thirst.. when u feed him dinner.. he might take water at that time and still feel thirsty at night.. we mothers confuse it with feed.. if ur baby is small.. keep some water and dropper at ur side.. before he wakes up gv him 5-6 ml of water.. babies take feed for every possible reason.. be it passing of urine or thirst or gastric gases... keep urself calm.. water solves the problem.. if possible gv aa little warm water

I met up with my pediatrician and he said that we must stop it overnight. A few days he will cry but then he will be OK! my cousin suggested that we put karela(bitter gourd) paste on our breasts. the child will stop taking feeds then. I am suffering from the same problem but hoping the above suggestions works! will try it and update you all soon!

hello. I'm back as promised. so , I did try the bitter gourd/ karela paste method and it worked!!!!!!! but before that I sent my son with my husband for a night trip and then when he was back I put the paste. immediately he stopped my feeds and started sleeping better. you only have to know how to soothe the baby for a few days a he won't know how else to express himself or feel comforted. it's been a month already and he's sleeping well. he does remember the feeds but when I say it's chi chi, he smiles. :)
