Please help.... sleep deprived and getting more fed up by the day. My gorgeous son is now 6 and a half months old...and is still waking allot during the night.... here's what we do ....
8/9am -Breakfast is porridge , 12.30/1pm - dinner is homemade veg/fruit puree (just starting to introduce chicken / meat but he isn't impressed yet - ordered an annabel karmel recipe book to help) and4/4.30pm - again veg then fruit puree and yoghurt. About 6pm we have just started to give him a bit of porridge (in the hope it helped. .. nothing yet). His bottles are usually between 4oz/ 5oz (based on what he will actually take) and he gets these approx 10 am / 1pm / 3 p m / 5 PM. Then his bedtime routine is 6.30pm bath by me and my husband then quiet time dressing him/massaging him again both of us in his darkened nursery with his relaxing baby mobile music on he has between 6/7oz with a spoon of rice for his bedtime... by my husband so they have that time together. He falls asleep whilst being fed and goes down brilliantly. . He sleeps until about 9.30pm and has another 4 - 5oz (all his night feeds have one baby spoon of rice in) then again at 1.30am / 4am then usually wakes between 6.30-8am and is awake but doesn't want milk at this time.
I wondered if anyone had any suggestions or will it just take more time ?? FYI he was born at 36 was with a few initial problems but ok now , he did have bad colic up until 4 months xx
I just need to drop some of these night feeds but I don't like the sound of gina ford or feberization (they sound terrible). Help..
