to get past these really early wake-ups? DS was still having night feeds until a week ago when I went on strike. He will now go from 6.30/7 until between half 3 and 4. I can get him back down then without a feed, but he always wakes at that time. Then about half an hour later he's up again. I have been feeding him then because whenever I have tried not to he's woken up every 10 mins until I have fed him. I know by this time he has gone 10 hours, so probably is hungry.
I have tried offering him water, but he just shoves it away.
After I feed him he will then sleep for another hour, today another 2. However, I would actually like to sleep a full night myself at some point. He is 13 months. Am I doomed to this until he just one day sleeps through.

You have my sympathies. My DS is also 13 months,he does sleep through (usually) but wakes between 5&6am which is killing me as I work evenings.
I also feed my DS at this time in the hope that I'll get an extra hour of sleep.
However,I'm pretty sure he isn't hungry (even though it settles him).

All the books say delay feeding til 7am otherwise they will always expect it.
I just wish he would do 7-7 like DD did at that age.
