Oh dear, have you tried other brands or sizing up? I really think if you didn't have to change him at night it'd be easier to get him to fall back asleep. I know lots of people recommend the "No Cry Sleep Solution" book.

Yep. He's already in 6's. But he is 26lbs, and 32inches. I've tried every brand. Even Kawaii's Heavy Overnights. Doesn't work. But when you drink 20something oz in 8 hours, you pee alot.
I gonna get that book.

Re: Food/Sleep/Soothing for 11 month old.

I know that it's not a happy solution but I honestly think that for many kids the only thing that works is some kind of sleep training. Whatever you decide on. 11 months is actually a great time to do it too. Waiting until they are older will be much harder.

Honestly he probably still needs that nutrition at night. Breast milk digests fast and still should consist of most of his diet. He is probably taking more at night for what he is lacking in the day. I would not make him go without at his age.

Re: Food/Sleep/Soothing for 11 month old.

Our DS is only 8 months old, but I know when he "power ate" in the evenings, he slept a LOT better. He would eat just a couple of bottles at daycare, then pound down up to 24 ounces in a 4 hour period. Then sleep all night.

He stopped doing that about the same time he began waking frequently at night again. I guess he just got a greater understanding of fullness and didn't want to stuff himself so much.

I don't know. I'm reading the no cry sleep solution and haven't found anything in there we don't do, but then I'm so used to waking up at night. I've been living in a haze for years and have gotten quite used to being tired all the time.

It definitely did consist of most of his diet till about a month ago. But he only gets about 50% BM at night, the rest is formula, and I am almost out of BM so I've been using less and less of it. Usually its 1 bottle of formula, 1 of BM. back and forth like that. Even just in formula he gets over 20 oz a day.

He used to do that. We called it "tanking up". He'd eat and then 2 hours later eat again, and normally sleep good, but not lately. He is teething hard caore, but this has been going on his whole life.
