HI there! So my little Isaac is 6wks old now & I was reading some blogs on here & read an interesting little side note. It said "39% of 1mon olds are sleeping through the night. Has your little one reached that milestone yet?"
First of all, is this true? Should he really be sleeping through the night yet? My Isaac still wakes up to feed every 4 hours & every 2 when he's going through a growth spurt. And he's eating btwn 4-5oz at each feed. So he's literally eating about 16-18oz throughout the 10-13hr he's sleeping at night. Cuz he usually goes down, officially, to start his bedtime about 10pm then is actively awake by about 11am. But in between there, he wakes about every 4 hrs to feed, doesn't open his eyes, just eats & goes back to solid sleep. When he does actually open his eyes it's b/c I'm changing his diaper & he's sensitive to touch. He doesn't wake to sound but you change his position at all, & his eyes are wide open! But I hold him for 20-30min & he goes back to sleep.
So, all of that to ask, should he be sleeping through the night already or no? How many of yours are? Should I have already started putting cereal in his night bottle so he won't wake up hungry? Won't that predispose him to becoming overweight if you add cereal too soon?
I'm a first time mom- can't you tell!! LOL
