Over the past 2 days, I've had advice given to me from 2 different docs (one is my dentist) that I just had to share with all of you. I'm sure you'll get as much of as chuckle out of it as I did.
Quick background- my DS just turned 4 months on Monday. He's not sleeping through the night but goes about 4 hours, wakes to eat, about 2 hours, wakes to eat, and another 4 hours and wakes to eat. IMO, not to shabby!
Pediatrician: "I see that Keegan is not sleeping through the night. Have you tried rice cereal with him yet? Since he's got good head control and is watching you eat, you may want to try it. I bet he'll start sleeping better for you."
Dentist: after some quick chatting about our babies, asked if DS was sleeping through the night. After I said no, her response " You know at 4 months old, babies don't need to wake to eat at night anymore. They can sleep just fine through the night without food. Just let him be- he'll sleep for you."
Wow!! I kind of expected that from the ped since that seems to be popular belief these days, but the dentist?!? Oh boy...
