Elias has not been sleeping through the night. He was for a little while, but that ended seemingly months ago. Lately he has been getting up every three-four hours (go to sleep about 8, get up at 11, 2:30, 5:30/6). He always nurses when he wakes up.
My pediatrician said we cam start trying to give him a little cereal at night. She said we can give it to him right on a spoon (so I can still nurse and not have to pump another darn bottle). AND that it will probably help him sleep the night, since he is obviously hungry. But, I am dragging my feet on it, even though I know it would mean I would get a full nights sleep too. He isn’t quite five months yet (he will be on Dec. 12) and it just seems a little early to me.
When did you start your kids on cereal? Did it help them sleep through the night? Do you wish you would have waited?
