My son was not gaining wait properly but I begged our peditrican not to make me switch him to formula. After a month without sleep I tried giving him more formula than usual. It was like the heavens opened and dumped sleep on us. He slept 6 straight hours. It was WONDERFUL! So the next night I didn't do that I wanted to see what was really going on. Any how after yet another sleepless night we have all come to the conclusion that he needed more. He has been so content the last week on formula that it is a complete turn around. We were still nursing a few times a day but then he had no interest in it so we elected to stop nursing. However today at church he decided that the bottle wasn't going to work and that he wanted to nurse. So we did. I'm wondering if this is normal? Should I just go ahead and wean him or continue to ensure he gets a couple nursings a day? I'm not sure what I should be doing now..........any suggestions or help?
