I have 3 boys aged 9mths, 3yrs and 6yrs. Everyone sleeps okay but since we went away and he got teeth he doesn't sleep more than 3 hrs at a time. I breastfeed at bedtime (7pm), but then wakes up every 2.5/3hrs - it's not hunger more comfort, but it's killing me. Any tips what I can do to get him to sleep through - he has a dummy and regular routine. Have tired controlled crying but he just hurst himself and screams for hours (I give up after 2.5hrs and once everyone was awake - horrible and not fair on anyone) Tempted to give up breast feeding, but not really sure if a bottle would solve it.

Any suggestions would be great.

Sometimes he falls asleep on breast most of the time just sleepy from feed when I put him in his cot and then leave turning off the lights. Why he wakes up agin so frequently I don't know!!!
