So should I be concerned? 13 month old, little for his age - 10th percentile. BLW because of necessity - won't be fed from a spoon. Still wants 5 bottles a day - won't eat anything until he has his milk. I'm not a big believer in "training" - figure he'll get there in the end - am i wrong?

This is more of a feeding issue than a sleepibg issue. Make sure he has multi vitamins if his diet is lacking and keep encouraging food.

I would say you need proper medical advice since children should be eating properly by 12 months.

Having lots of milk in addition to a full and varied diet shouldn't be a problem unless obesity was a concern, which is clearly isn't.

My daughter was like this at 11 months and I had to deliberately hold out on a few daytime feeds to get her to eat more food, then she quickly dropped all her daytime feeds, but still feeds quite a bit at night still at 20 months

13 months is still fairly little. Might be worth trying to swap at least one bottle for a cup of milk and a snack but I wouldn't stress too much about it yet smile
