My DS slept through the night (7-9 hrs!!) from 6 weeks till 5 and a half months - every single night. For the past week and a half, he has been waking up at least once in the middle of the night to nurse. I started solids, which he devours, but it didnt make a difference. Will he ever go back to being a good sleeper?

At about 5 1/2 or 6 months, babies normally have a growth spurt. It is normal. He probably will start sleeping through the night in a few weeks.

It is toatlly natural for a baby to wake during the night it is a survival mechanism and protects against SIDS.
