Thanks so much!!!
If there is nothing else physically wrong with your babe, he's probably having a growth spurt, teeth coming in, etc.
Are you sleeping with him? Are you able to side lie when you nurse and go back to sleep? When DS was little and I wasn't yet confident about sleeping and side lie nursing I propped myself up with a reading pillow and slept that way while he nursed. Once you master nursing laying down and going back to sleep (and throw out your clock or hide it so you don't know how many hours/ minutes it's been since the last nursing) you'll feel more rested regardless of how often he's nursing.
If anyone has advice, it would be greatly appreciated. I am a complete zombie, not having slept in forever.

My 5 mo old DS used to only wake 2-3 times a nite to feed and happily see me. For the past month he has been waking up every 2 hours sometimes to feed, sometimes not. I have read many posts that some babies wake up often because they are in pain from a food allergy or sensitivity. My child doesn't usually cry when he wakes up so I am assuming that he isn't suffering from this. I hate, however, to assume anything. Do babies that have the allergies wake up and cry? I am worried that I am missing something. Also, any thoughts on why he is waking up so often. I just can't bring myself to let him CIO and am hoping that he will someday sleep thru the night.
Thanks so much!!!
could be nothing...teething...growth spurt....
would not worry. I would have done anything to get my ds to sleep every two hours. He was up hourly if not more at that age
Good luck to you!
