OK, ladies, I need some wisdom here. I am starving my kid! Here's the story -
M usually eats a banana around 10 then some yogurt and shredded cheese at 1. Then at dinner, he eats what we are eating, and then a big bowl of cereal before bed. I tried BLS but he was too hungry, and likes the food to be in his belly, not his tray! He is a big guy, 24 pounds.
So, he was sleepign for 12 hours for a few months. YAY! He did it when he was ready, it was NEVER pushed on him. For the past week, he has been getting up in the middle of the night. He will nurse, then lay awake in his crib. Most of the time he is just talking to himself, but sometimes he will fuss and whine a little. If I go pick him up, he screams and screams, so I know he is ok in the crib. Last night he was up at 12:30 and nursed back to sleep. He was up again by 1:30 just whining and moaning. I sent Dh in to see if he could get M back to sleep and it all just escalated. We were both in there off and on until 4am!! In sheer desperation I plunked M in his high chair and made up a bowl of oatmeal. He ate it all, then I rocked him for 3 minutes, no joke, and he was fast asleep. He is still sleeping!!
So, I think the poor kid needs more food. What should I feed him and when? Can anyone give me a typical day of food in their house? I am so confused.
