My daughter will be 6 months old on June 7th and she still wakes up every 2-3 hours at night. I usually breastfeed her and she goes back to sleep. I never let her cry, I will always pick her up and feed her right away. I have been reading parenting books and they say that by this age, they should be able to stay satisfied by their last feeding of the night, and that a lot of times, they want the comfort when they wake up at night and its not usually because they are hungry. I also have experimented with rice cereal but she doesn't like it so I haven't really pushed it yet. So I guess my question is, should I start to let her cry it out at night so she starts sleeping through the night, or should I continue to feed on demand at night? And when she does start eating more solids, is it typical for her to start sleeping better? What can I do to keep my 6 month old from waking up every 2 hours? Any advice on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
