Finally we have dropped the 3am bottle! The excitement of this milestone is momentous, as any mom will attest.
We almost had the 3am bottle dropped at 6 months, then the boys got sick with roseola. After that followed a horrible head cold which turned into tonsillitis and bronchitis for poor Monkey. Then Lion Cub started teething. Each time something happened we ended up at square one.
So finally we got to the point where the boys were only drinking about 60mls at 3am and I figured that they were waking more out of habit that hunger.
Over the space of 2 weeks I decreased the number of scoops of formula powder in their bottles while leaving the volume of water the same. Then we moved over to plain water.
Last night the boys had one sip of water each at 4:30 and went straight back to sleep.
I’m ready to burst into a Judy Garland-esque musical number.
