I refer to post below:
Besides the crying out method, i been told that after giving her last bottle at 10pm, if he wakes again during the night, i should just give him water, that way he' s not expecting to be fed ever time???? What' s your take on this doc?

HELP! My 10 month old will not sleep through the night.?
My daughter wakes up 4+ times a night, and wants to be held while she sleeps. She has better nights (wakes once or twice wanting to be fed), but most of the time I am up and down all night with her. Some times I give up and bring her into bed with me, where she still is restless, but sleeps somewhat better. She she is bottle fed and she eats 3 solid meals a day, so I know she is getting enough to eat. What can I do? I need my sleep! If I could even get her to sleep one 5-6 hour stretch I would be alright getting up a few times a night, but this is crazy.

Your daughter is still rather young, but if you are certain she is getting enough to eat you will need to try the controlled crying method. Do not let her sleep in your bed because this is one of the main reason for her frequent waking and wanting to be held while she sleeps

Giving a bottle of water is not the answer as your baby will not feel full on it.She will simply keep on waking up for more and more bottles.
