My 8 month old boy is breastfed (never taken a bottle) eats 2-3 solids per day, goes to bed at 7:30 After a routine, has 3 naps a day, is very social and happy, walking around furniture and by all accounts fabulous (like all babies lol) however...
his nighttime sleep is challenging..
most nights he wakes every 2-4 hours to feed.. and what seems like genuine big feeds.. I'm pretty tired so I'm getting pretty over not having had a good sleep (plus were ttc)..
my boy falls asleep almost on his own.. with just a hand on his back (it's taken a while to get to this point) we've tried almost everything.. my hubby has tried putting him back to sleep, I've tried water in a sippy cup, and all he does is whinge/cry until he has a feed.. my dr said she had the same issue with her twins until 14 months they slept through, the only night he slept longer 6+hrs was when he had a cold and wouldn't bf so I had to syringe feed formula..
I don't drink caffeine I take supplements like fenugreek to help my milk supply (I'm on the smaller side so it can be challenging to keep my supply bountiful).. any mums have any advice or suggestions.. I'm not ok with CIO as he just keeps going and going.. sorry for the long post just wanted to provide as much info
oh and I feel as tho so many people judge that I'm still feeding him at night (except the dr and some family) night weaning just doesn't seem remotely possible given how much he feeds...
