My 6 month old son is a sweetheart. We started him on baby applesauce/green beans etc. at night time. So he gets food and his regular 7.5 formula bottle. No matter what I do he does not last longer than 5 hours between feedings. I've tried, spoon feeding + bottle, spoon feeding + bottle with rice cereal in it, s.f + bottle w/oatmeal (baby oatmeal), mixing oatmeal with baby food + reg bottle w/ and w/o oatmeal in it, and putting the applesauce in his bottle and it doesn't change a thing! I asked his ped what I should do and he says at night time when I give him more food, I should let him cry it out when it hits 5 hours because he can last longer than 5 hours especially since his intake is larger than in the day.
