I am another sleep deprived Mum. My LO had been waking up almost every 2 hours before I introduced the solids. He accepted it really good and I ended up breastfeeding him only once a day, or better say once per night. At 4am. I don't know how to make him sleep till 6am. I am willing to keep breastfeeding him however if it could only happen a bit later. He usually has his 'dinner' at around 8pm and goes to sleep by 9pm. This is his summer routine, in winter time he would go to sleep by 8pm. Around midnight he has his bottle and then he sleeps, if I am lucky until 4am. Then I breastfeed him but he keeps waking up at 5am, 6am and finally 7am. I have tried to stop breastfeeding at 4am because I honestly believe he isn't that hungry at 4 am after a full bottle. However he is really persistant. He doesn't cry but keeps making noise and really boring sounds. I hush him for about 5 minutes and then he makes sounds again. He can go on like that forever. I would really, really like to teach him to sleep through the night, but I don't know how.... During the day he still sleeps 3 times a day. Always in his crib. He falls asleep on his own. No problems with that. That is why it is even stranger how come he can't continue sleeping in the night. Any advice would be great.
