Night feeds

hi, my baby is 1 year 9 months. i have him on Nido during the day, morning and eve. my problem is he still drinks up to 3 bottles during the night so I''ve put him on Lactogin at night. Is there anything else I can give him? he refuses to drink water and asks for a milk bottle every time he wakes.thanks

Your little toddler is probably having too much milk if he has 3 bottles during the night and he has his regular bottles during the day as well. Also he is keeping you awake at night.His demands for three bottles at night have now become a habit. After a good supper give him his Nido before he goes to sleep.If you want to stop his habit of having all these bottles at night you will have to apply the 'controlled crying' method. Look this up on Google. It is hard on the nerves but the alternative is for your son's demands for these night bottles to conitinue for a long time.
