My baby boy is almost 6 mnths, and I feel his sleeping patterns hv changed. I mostly bottle feed now, but I nurse also at night. Seems like he doesnt want much at night just something to put him back to sleep. But now hes figity alot. I will bring him from his crib into our bed which is a qween bed & my husband takes alot of the bed, so baby kicks him alot in the bck at night and sometimes husband goes and sleeps on couch. Our baby wont go bck to sleep now rt away. Lately I hv been getting up to get a bottle at 3 or 4 to put him bck to sleep. Then hes up at 5 usually def by 6. He goes to bed abt 8. I noticed last nt he wanted to go to bed at 7. He use to sleep better than this, now its like hes a newborn again. I feed him solids 2x's a day & several bottles thru out the day. I noticed hes bn a little constipated some days so I hv laid off the cereal, I heard that contipates them. He has a tooth coming in , so Im thinking its the teething thats irritating him, and messing up his sleep. Theres bn a few nights lately that I just want to cry, no sleep. So typical night now is he will go to bed at 8 or 9 than sleep till like midnight, nurse him, than put him bck in crib, he wakes up again 1 or 2, I get the bottle, than bck to crib, if nt our bed, than up again 4 or 5.
