My son is 6 months + and is on solid food but he is still waking up at night. I dont know what to do I think I am starting to take it out on my son, as I get no sleep at all. Even during the day it is very hard to get him to feed and sleep. He is teething but I dont think thats to blame. when he wakes up at night I get him back to sleep by feeding him, I have thought of giving him water instead but then I have the dilemma of how to get him back to sleep after that. I have tried to show him how to sleep on his own but he just cries all the time when I teach him, so to get some quiet time I make him go to sleep by swaying him on a pillow. I live in a small flat so his cot is in my room, I am going back to work in Dec so I am desperate to make him sleep though the night now if I can! I dont understand why he will not sleep though the night now he is on solids, he must get full after dinner but then why does he wake up at night to feed from he so often. Does any one have any ideas? I am at a lost and I tend to cry most days when I dont know what else I can do! Please help!
