Didnt think it was that unusual really but my midwife tut tutted and told us to gradually water down his bottle of milk til its just water to break the habit.
Has anyone tried this and if so did it work?

My dd3 had a bottle during the night until she was about 15 months old!!! We tried waterng it downa nd it made her wake up the end giving her a bottle seemed the kindest option and as she zonked out immediately I soon got in the habit of getting straight back to not big deal really...

Thank you for your reply,
We did try watering a feed down the other night and found as you said she woke again two hours later.
Think you are right and it just seems much easier to give her a bottle and get back off to sleep,if she gets too upset she wakes DS and then we are all up!

I think if you have a baby that is waking up and takes hours to get back to seep then I'd be more inclined to ry and get them off the bottle at night quicky...sometimes our daughter would go through the night and other times she wouldn' she always went straight back to seep after a bottle, so it was the easiest option for us to let her drop it when she was ready - which she eventually did....
Best of luck!!
