Your little one is incapable of producing amylase in large quantities as it takes about 1-2 years for it to come into play. There might be some salivary amylase production during the first 6 months, but pancreatic amylase, which is required for digesting a grain, is not produced until molar teeth appear.

Feed baby very very well at night
Gradually stop sleeping with baby at night. Let him sleep with daddy or any other person at home. Keep tea or water to give baby when he wakes in the night to suck and because it's not mummy, they will collect the water. If it is mummy they will keep rejecting it and crying cus they know eventually mummy will give them breast to suck
