And I'm pregnant with my 2nd baby so its not fun. Any advvice?

Dear Chan
Please take your son to the GP - see if you can catch some urine to take with for him to test - he may have a urinary tract infection or high sugarlevels - also ensure that you do not make the milk on too strong - it may contain higher levels of salt that will make him thirsty.
If he is healthy and if he eats well during the day, ensure that he gets in enough fluids like water, diluted fruitjuice or tea during the day. Dilute his night bottles with water more than it says on the milk container - sometimes it is just a bad habit and they drink so much because it is so nice. Try and slowly switch him over to water at night - many times they then stop waking up for milk.
