Hi Zara, sorry to hear LO has been unwell.
Largely a good nights sleep relies on being as comfortable as possible. Ensure LO has a clean bottom, clothing/bedding is loose & not irritating skin nor making too hot/cold. If LO is itchy you could try massaging LO with some cream such as E45 or Sudocrem as part of bedtime routine which should help soothe itchiness.
Another tip is with the bottle contents - milk is fine before bed but should be replaced with water overnight to avoid an expectance of 'feeding' overnight. If it is thirst they are waking for they will drink, if it is comfort they will suckle without filling up.

Hi Zara, my son has similar, best tip to help with itching throughout the night? Get a damp piece of cotton and wrap around the areas in question or even plaster, this cools and relieves the irritation. Hope it helps x
