My LO just turned 5 mo and is still waking up 2-3 times a night. I don't think every time he wakes up he's actually hungry, but I offer the breast and he'll eat, thus falling back asleep. When does a BF baby usually start sleeping through the night? Should mine be sleeping through the night already?
I know that sometimes he'll wake up and start playing so we'll rock him back to sleep and for the first time last night, he fell back asleep on his own.
I've read so much about baby's learning to fall asleep on their own, etc. I don't really like the CIO method. At the same time, I don't want to hinder him by nursing him back to sleep, rocking, etc. At what age should I stop doing these things? Now?
Is his wakefulness just part of his age and the new curiosity he has?
