Single Dad of twins

HI All,

I am a single father of 13 month old twins, I need some help regarding getting my son to sleep through. Generally they are very good and my daughter sleeps from 7PM all the way through till 7AM approx, My son still gets up for a bottle at approx 2:00am and then he is awake again from 5:00 am and will not go back to sleep. Is this normal??
Also if anyone can suggest ways that could assist me being the only parent.

It seems that your little daughter is a model baby for her age. Your son is doing very well but seems to like to wake up early. He is unlikely to be hungry as he has a feed at 2am.
