Ok... Totally normal. Be patient. My lo was the same. She would drink small amounts , often. It gets better. Try increasing formula during the day.

Does he sleep a lot during the day?

Have you tried putting a little cereal in his bottle at night?

Formula may not necessarily do it. Is he normally breastfed? If so I found that my LO did better if I started his bedtime routine earlier (bath, lotion rub, book, nursing) so he wouldn't be as tired when he started eating and would eat more before falling asleep and that kept him down longer. He slept through the night starting at 6 weeks.

It helped when I took my son to baby singing and story time at the library. All the social interaction made him so sleepy he only woke up once the first time we went.

Formula could be making him gassy too. Is he swaddled? We use the white noise machine with projector

Swaddling makes a ton of difference!!

Sorry sweetie. At 3 months it's normal for him to wake up at night. My only recommendation is to try to increase how much he eats during the day and to try cluster feedings in the evening before bedtime. My almost 6 month old still wakes up 2-3 times a night. 😝 I'm just not one of those lucky moms.

I agree with Ashley! Mine didn't start sleeping through the night till he was 2 years old -_-
