Sleeping through the night

An_248606 posted:
My baby is 4 1/2 months old and has went from sleeping through the night to waking up about every 2-3 hours. She is breast fed and I supplement formula and have tried to give her some formula before bed to help her sleep as suggested by my doctor. I have also tried to give her some cereal before her last feeding and shd does not seem to want it and really doesn't swallow enough of it to help. Any suggestions?

May be she is not ready for solids yet .You might want to wait a little bit .Also its better to Breastfeed before sleeping than formula as it calms the baby down more than forumla.My 4 1/2 old won't sleep for more than 2 -3 hrs as well and hius Paed said its normal for babies to behave like that

It could possibly be because your baby is teething. My baby is 5 months old and already starting to teeth. She wakes up quite often as well.
