1 year old boy

my boy is on lactogen 2, has a good meal at supper time but still wakes up every 4 hrs for a milk feed - i gv him water thinking its just thirst but he refuses it and takes to the milk - is this normal?

This is perfectly normal at this age. At one year you need to change your son to a growth formula such as Lactogen 3 or Nido.Hopefully this will make him feel fuller for longer and cause him to wake up less often at night for a feed.
