My 17 month old (normally a great sleeper) just started waking up around 1am hungry. He uses the "more sign" and has just started saying "bot" for bottle...so I know that's what he's asking (ok, screaming) for. I give him 6 oz of formula (he hates milk and refuses any kind we've tried)...then he screams some more and I give him 4 more oz.
Maybe it's because we weaned from the final evening nursing two weeks ago...though we was only getting 2-3 ounces from that and now he takes an 8 oz bottle before bed, so that shouldn't have caused hunger.
What do you do with a hungry child in the middle of the night, if they are already eating big dinners an hour before bed? Are they getting a little old for formula, or is this no big deal to give them that?
I have no idea what to do with this one...if it's no big deal, I can get up for a while...but I don't want to start a regression if he doesn't really "need" more food at 1am.
