Please help? My baby are 7 months old but still wakes up 4 to 5 times at night. I have tried everything and have been to the dr several times for check ups, just to make sure there's nothing wrong with him. He wakes up and cries ,doesn't want to feed(drinks bottle formula Nan) and if he feeds it's just for a few seconds than he falls asleep again just to wake up after 30 minutes.

I tried telamet in his drinks and at one stage also gave him ,buscopan before bed time. He still doesn't sleep I have also increase his intakes and drink during the day assuming he may be hungry at night . I also tried several other milk formulas. He was previously on s26 ,I've tried Isomil and now Nan but it doesn't make a differenceminutes

The problem here is that your baby is still hungry when he goes to sleep in the evenings. He needs more in the way of solids. Make sure to feed him his solids first before giving him the bottle. Sometimes babies with this kind of problem do well on goats milk but it is difficult to find a good goats milk formula.
