    Have you maybe thought to try a little formula right before you put him down?

    Have you started introducing solids? Is the 1-1.5 hours just at night or also during the day?

    Has your DH tried giving him the bottle? Sometimes they wont take it from mom but will from dad.

    The 1-1.5 hours is ALL the time and he does get solids!! He loves to eat but apparently it has no connection to how much he wants to nurse. He will sometimes take a bottle from DH but he is deploying VERY soon so...

    My girls didn't sleep through the night, until they where 8 months old, when I stopped BF-ing. Im defiantly not saying you should stop BF-ing, but maybe start solids before he goes to bed, or maybe some rice in his bottle... oh you said he wont take a bottle... Im sorry I dont know what for you to do... I didn't get any sleep at all like I said till they where 8 months old because after one would wake up the other would. Our doctor told us that eventually they wake up not because they are hungry but because it is habit. SO maybe its out of habit he is waking up?! Have you tried just soothing him and not feeding him? Good Luck sweetie!

    Im 7 weeks pregnant too.
