Q.

Son not sleeping well

My son is now 16months old and he still does not sleep through during the night. Can you please give me advise on how to get him to sleep through without waking up?

This is difficult to answer because you do not mention whether your little son is waking up for a bottle or if he appears to be having any discomfort when he sleeps.Make sure that he eats well before bedtime and has his bottle of milk. Then if you really want to stop your baby waking for a bottle at night you can try the 'controlled crying method' [you will find this on Google]
