To start with do not give your baby any sedatives as this will only aggravate the problem.It seems that your little boy has got used to an audience every night. He is not hungry or in any pain so it seems that most of his problem lies with the fact that he has got used to this cycle of waking up for attention frequently. This is exhausting you.Obviously you make sure that he eats well before bedtime and has his usual bottle. He needs to be in his own bed as well, preferably in his own room because this sleeping next to you is aggravating the attention seeking problem. Once you have read to him and given him his bottle kiss him goodnight and leave the room. If he starts to cry you will need to let him cry for longer and longer periods before going to him. This is not easy to do but you need to be strong and go through the process. Eventually he will get the nmessage and fall asleep by himself and the cycle will gradually be broken.
