My son is 7 months old and i feel like i created a monster with his sleeping habit. He was never a good sleeper until he was about 4 months old. He would get up about 2 times a night sometimes more but after he was 4 months he finally started sleeping more through the night sometimes still getting up but not to bad. I am breastfeeding. My son now is back to not sleeping at all. I have done that whole let them cry it out thing and i worked for a week. He cried for the first 2 days and then he would go right to sleep and not wake up until the morning. As soon as i lay him in his crib he sceams and screams and i let him go for a while but then he gets to where he cant even breathe he gasps and coughs its awful. He also used to go to bed at 8 now he is up until 11 or 12. Im thinking is a separation thing from me but im not sure what to do. HELP....View Thread
My son is 7 months old as well and he too spits up. It is def getting better slowly but its still more then i think. Our doctor said it is fine that some babies dont stop until 1. My son sometimes chokes but its not terrible. I would say just watch your baby and see. As long as your baby isnt losing weight i would say there shouldnt be a problem.View Thread
