sleeping has taken a complete turn

So we nailed the sleeping through the night. It was going amazingly. DS (10 months) was polishing off his night time bottle and waking happily at 6 the next morning.

It has literally collapsed in the most dramatic way possible. He has been sleeping badly for the past 2 or 3 weeks. But this past week he has literally stopped even having an ounce of milk at bedtime and he is waking literally all through the night. I have been up since bloody 3am the last three days!

So he wasn't sleeping great before but was finishing his bottle and it wasn't terrible. I suspect I had gone a bit soft and just need to go more hardcore. But now he isn't having is bottle it is much worse.

My question is this - do you think maybe he just doesn't want the nighttime bottle and I should drop his 3 o clock one? At the moment He has three 7oz bottles a day. One when he wakes up, one at three and one at 7 before bed. He usually has most of his 3 o clock one. But maybe should I replace tyhis with a small snack and hope that it will mean he is more interested in his bedtime one? The past few nights he has literally not even wanted a sip.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Poor you. If its any consolation all this is pretty normal. There is a big developmental leapt at around this age an associated sleep regression. Can't do links at the moment but have a look at the wonder weeks website and google ask moxie sleep regression.
