I have an almost 8 month old, 6 months develepmentally because she was 2 months premature, girl who won't sleep through the night still. If I give her only her formula and no cereal she wakes up every three hours to eat again. If I give her formula and cereal she sleeps almost 8 hours. The problem is, when she eats too much cereal (oatmeal) she gets so constipated that she gets grumpy with good reason. There are many nights that I don't get a lot of sleep because of this. Does anyone have any suggestions about what to do to help her to sleep better without all the tummy issues? The other thing is that she has reflux and if I fill her up with too much formula, she spits up all over the place even though she gets meds for this. Thanks for any advice.View Thread
I do giver her the fruits and veggies and she really likes them. I also wonder if part of the constipation is due to the AR formula she gets. If we give her anything else we get a formula bath. Yuck. I might try putting the fruit in her bottle when I give her the last feeding for the night before bed. Appreciate your response though. What really sucks is that I have friends whos kids have slept through the night from about 4 months on. :0) She's going to be my stubborn one I think.View Thread
