Q.

Please help! Any advice please.

My son is 9 months old and not sleeping at night. He eats healthy meals x3 per day and drinks 4 bottles of formula. He goes to sleep at 19h30 - 20h00 at night and is awake at 22h00. He will then fall asleep again but wakes up at 23h00 and does not sleep again until 02h30 - 03h00. After 03h00, he wakes up at 05h00. He sleeps +- 2 hours during the day. Please help!

Your baby is obviously not getting enough sleep and neither are you as a result of this.He is getting plenty to eat but is still very wakeful. It is possible that he is becoming hungry despite him seemingly getting adequate amounts of formula and solids.Try changing his formula to the Novalac SD [Sweet Dreams] formula.
