    Hey everyone, I have a concern I thought I'd throw out there, and see if anyone can help me out! I have a son who will be 5 months old this weekend. I have him eating cereal mixed with 100% juice by spoon in the a.m, gerber stage 1 food in the afternoon, and then a cereal bottle at night. About the past week he's been waking up CONSTANTLY during the night, I can usually get him to fall asleep but I have to feed him, which is completely out of routine for him since weeks ago he was sleeping from about 9 p.m. until at least 6-7 a.m. Is it the fact he's eating 3 meals a day now that could be making him wake up? He's pretty spoiled too honestly, he'll cry and cough just to get attention to be picked up, I'm not sure but it's definately worrying me!

    Hmm, I'm not sure.

    It could be teething or a growth spurt.

    Or he could just be testing you. :)

    My little one is doing the same exact thing. He used to sleep from about 8:30PM to about 6:30AM and rarely would he wake up. Now he seems to wake up 2 to 4 times a night. I feel like I have a 6 week old again. I'm not sure what to do either. I fed him more at night last night and he did sleep better, but I feel like I'm stuffing him just to sleep decent.
