So, my delima is that I really want to feed Colin solids at night so he'll sleep through the night (Really - so I can!). So I want to try to do this at his last feeding at night, around 8 or 9 typically. The problem . . . he is usually so tired at night he falls alseep after his bottle around 6 and then we have to try to wake him up for his evening feeding. With a bottle it's not too bad, but tryign to get him to eat solids at either feeding is hard because he's too tired! I have tried to feed him ceral before the bottle, btu he's sometimes sooo hungrey that he's not interested. And then afterwards he's usually so tired. Ideally I'd start feeding him cereal before he gets hungry or a half an hour after his bottle. But it never seems to work because he's sleeping!
How do you all schedule your feedings??? Also, how much are you giving at first? I'm starting with abotu a tablespoon of cereal. Last night I tried for the first time a little bit of bananas in the cereal to try to entice him a bit more, not overly successful. I could have tried more, or he was jsut too tired!
