I'm sure you all get this question all of the time but I hope you don't mind another! My 5 month old (in 6 days) is finally doing great with BFing. My doctor said to start giving him cereal to help him sleep better at night. I did with a little breast milk and the first night he slept 6 hours straight and the second he slept 8 hours straight, the 3rd night 6 hours, then 5 hours and now, he is waking every 2 hours(for 2 weeks now)! We do the same thing every night like giving him cereal and nursing him but no matter what, he wakes every 2 hours. He takes 2 naps during the day and those used to be only 30 minutes but now are about 1 1/2 hours each. I don't nap during the day because it takes me about an hour to fall asleep and by that time baby is awake and I homeschool my 1st grade.
I'm not really sure what to do. My doctor says to put him on formula but I'm not really for that, besides I tried to give it to him as a supplement one day and he hated it.
Anyone have any ideas, or suggestions? Maybe just some suggestions on how to deal with this??
Thanks in advance!!
