I'd echo what the other mom's said...my son was also almost 1 year when I finally decided he had to stop waking to eat. I have the same book and do follow it. In the end we reduced his bottle by 1 ounce every 1-2 nights. Then when we got down to 3 ounces we decided we had to let him cry. I know you don't support it, but he cried that one night (for quite a long time) and then never woke in the middle of the night again. Unfortunately once they get into the habit of waking for this time with you but are still too young to reason with there aren't a lot of choices. I think Dr. W's book does go through some no cry options, they just take longer to implement. My son still at almost 3 goes to bed no later than 8p (we try for closer to 7p) and sleeps until almost 8a each morning. I would try the bedtime adjustment first and then go from there. Goodluck, I know how hard it is.
