My son is 6 months old and we started solids. He loves them and can't get enough of the cereal and home made veggies. He eats two solid meals a day and nurses only four to five times. He used to sleep through the night and is now waking up one more time than usual. This is the opposite of everyone else who just got their babies to sleep through the night.
He usually wakes up at 7:30 I nurse and give solids at 8 or 8:30am. He nurses again at 11:30 or 12:30, at 3:30 or 4pm and gets solids at 5pm and nurses at 7pm before bed. Sometimes he gets up at 1pm to nurse again. Do you think he is getting enough milk? I try to offer it two additional times but he refuses. I always mix the cereal with milk. Help PLEASE!!!
