I apologize for not posting sooner, below are the links to the studies:   http://erj.ersjournals.com/content/36/1/41.abstract   http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/cgi/content/short/119/6/1095   http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1651-2227.2003.tb00622.x/abstract
I was thinking the same. It actually dawned on me one night after I had read your post. If interested here is some info: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/relactation.html    Best wishes to you and your little one.

I would call your ped's office and ask if you should bring him in. Be sure to describe his behavior also.  Example: Is he playing normally or is he sluggish? Crying but consolable or is he inconsolable? Eating and drinking/nursing?   Dr.Sears website has a great section on fever but overall mother's intuition trumps all.

It's biologically normal for a six month old to feed throughout the night. No worries.
