Your on should be sleeping through better than he is by now.He may be better on a highly nutritious milk the very last thing just before he goes to sleep at night. Try him on Parmalat First Growth milk. He is so used to waking up now that even this may not help. Don't give him sugar water which will damage his teeth. Rather have another half a bottle of milk ready for him in case he wakens at night.

I have the same problem, and my baby does not want any kind of milk. What can I give in place of milk?
Thanks
