I have a 7 month old little boy that still gets up like a newborn. He is not breastfed, unfortunately, as much as I wanted to it didn't work out for us and he is milk protein sensitive so he is on hypoallergenic formula.
However, he is not a big eater. Sometimes he'll only take 3 ounces at a time, sometimes he will take a 5 ounce bottle, but he much prefers to snack throughout the day. I think this is the biggest reason he is still getting up so much at night to drink, I don't think he's taking in enough calories during the day.
We have started solid foods, he looks very interested everytime someone is eating, but most of the time has very little intrest in baby food, some days he will do pretty good and most days he's not interested in even trying a bite.
Has anyone had a little one like this before, any success stories on getting them a little more focused on eating during the day vs at night? I cannot do cry it out, but I also truly believe he needs at least some of the calories he's getting at night. He is fine weight wise, he's in the 50th% for weight and 75% for height, he is a long skinny baby.
Any input would be great, mommy is very tired and works full time
