He was sleeping through the night at 4 months. That lasted until 5 1/2 months. Since then he has been up every 3-4 hours around the clock to eat. He rarely takes naps longer than an hour during the day. I am at my wits end with breastfeeding right now because more often than not he bites as well (just got first tooth a month ago and now has 4 more coming in with 2 broken through).
He eats solid food as well as breastfeeding. To take a nap during the day he refuses unless he is at the breast then to go to bed sometimes I can get him to go to sleep on his own but most of the time he screams, I mean screams, until he gets his boobies to fall asleep with.
He has never been able to take bottles or pacifiers due to his tongue though we have tried. So that is out of the question. I am not able to pump so I can't give him milk in a sippy cup. I am just lost in all this because all my family and husbands family have formula fed and none have had to deal with a tongue tied baby either. Sorry this was so long I just don't know what to do. I am exhausted and I know my son is too because he sleeps maybe 12 hours in a 24 hours period.
