How can I get my 11 month old to sleep through out the night?

3 answers
My 11 month old son wakes up 2 or 3 times in the middle of the night, the only way I can soothe him back to sleep is by giving him his bottle, I want to end this but he cries when he doesn't get his bottle, I tried it for 2 nights but he cried, tossed and turned and woke everybody up...I need help... Thanks :/

if you are on a schedule you may find that perhaps his naps are too long, or maybe he doesnt wake up early enough, so most of his sleep time is being taken up during the day so he isnt as tired at night.    otherwise an alternitive is that he gets more exercise during the day which will in turn help him to be more tired at night and therefore sleep longer and peacefully.
Thank you, I've noticed he can take short naps during the day and still not be able to sleep throu the night, maybe I do need a strict schedule because he usually takes a nap at 2 or 3 in the afternoon and maybe another at 7 or 8 but like 30 mins, thanks for the advice...:)
he continues to wake up, expecting a bottle, because he knows that you will be there with one. i had a similar problem with my daughter at this age. my husband comes home pretty late at night from work. anywhere from 11pm-1am. my daughter would wake up every night wanting to get up and see daddy. i knew that eventually this had to end. it was hard letting her cry it out, but that's the only thing that helped.after 3 nights, she figured out that mommy was just not going to get her up, and she would go back to sleep.  at this age, they are capable of sleeping through the night.
