There can be several reasons for your baby waking so often at night. This may simply be due to a habit that he has developed. Other causes are a blocked nose, acid reflux or he may simply be hungry. By reducing the amount of milk powder you run the risk of him becoming hungry during the night. Although your bay is already 18 months, it may help to give him a sweet dreams formula at bedtime. Try Novalac SD and follow the mixing instructions carefully. If this does not help try Lactogen 3 which is a good formula for babies who get hungry often.
