My son is 6 months old and for the past month he has slowly been waking more and more frequently at night. At give months he was sleeping from 9 to 5 every night. He breastfeeds except for one bottle of formula before bed. I keep a strict bedtime routine. He has never been a baby that cries, he wakes up and rolls around and wines till I feed him. He sleeps in our room next to my bed. He chooses to roll and sleep on his tummy. He is rocked to sleep at night. I feel like I have tried everything. I have tried not doing a bottle of formula before bed. Rice cereal in his one bottle of formula. I've changed the temperature. He has no signs of teething besides drooling so i tried tylenol before bed.I've tried switching him into his own room. Changing types of pajamas. Letting him "sleep eat" before I go to bed. It started out he woke up after four hours, then three, now two, and every two after that. I thought it was just a growth spurt, but they don't last this long.I've tried just patting his back and putting him back down but he will not go back to sleep without eating every two hours. Switching to formula is not an option. He is not ready for solids (still had tongue reflex). Any ideas on how to get my baby back to sleeping through the night?
