We still rock him to sleep for all sleeps he hasn’t worked out how to get himself to sleep yet. Someone suggested I feed food first and then bottles as he was waking many times during the night and having 2 bottles during the night. We’ve had a lot of success with having the food first and bottles second and increasing the size of the bottles Melanie
