Ok so my son is now 2yrs old so i don't remember this stage too well but my daughter is almost 5 months old and she was sleeping about 7-8 hours straight then waking for a bottle then back down for a few hours. She has now changed her sleeping and has been up every 2 hours for about a week. She is up during the day and sleeps 2 times during the day. She doesn't like rice cereal too much so i add one spoon to her 6oz bottle jsut so she can get used to digesting it and have done this for about a month. I guess i'm wondering fi this is a growth spurt that i forget or if she needs to eat more. This is her eating schedule adn she's pretty close on each feed.
4:30am-4-6ozs and then she will sleep until 9am sometimes she will get up at 6am and eat another 4-6ozs...
Any advice on how to get her to eat more during the day and switch her schedule up some. I started giving her sweet potatoes, the starter ones that are like soup lol...yesterday and she was till up so this morning i gave her some rice cereal and she actually ate it! then at lunch i gave her more sweet potatoes and for supper. I got her to eat at 9:30am,1p, and 5pm with :food" and a bottle and then at 7pm gave her a normal 6oz bottle...please any advice so i can get some sleep so i can actually be active with my son during the day?!?!
