Moms, did your baby start all of a sudden being a bad sleeper around 6 months? Mine did to, he would not want to go to sleep until 2 or so and then he would wake up every 2 hours to nurse.... So after weeks and weeks of trial and error with nothing working, I was talking to my sister (she has 3 kids of her own) and we figured out that around the time we started having these problems was after we started solids.
So we thought maybe they where upsetting his tummy, well after 2 days of no baby food he had big nasty smelly poops all day, and that night he slept a little over 6 hours straight!! So I just thought if you are in the same spot I was you might try it for a couple days and see if it helps, i would have never thought of that if it wernt for my sister so I thought I would pass it on. And studies have proven that up to a year in age all babies really NEED is breast milk, so if you hold off on solids for awhile it won't hurt anything :-)
