When a child starts to at well, breast (or formula) milk becomes less importantce. I do not think your baby requires milk 5-6times at night, instead he has become dependant on the comfort and security of your presence. The only way to break this routine is to take away the reward (your attention) for waking in the night. Thus if your child is not ill, cold, or has a dirty nappy the best advice is to offer milk only once at night and not to offer attention at other times. It may take a week or two of very difficult nights to break the cycle, but it is the only advice I believe will make a diffirence. You should not feel guilty, because it is important for your baby and your marraige that you are well rested. Discuss this new approach with your husband and ask for his assistance.
