Gettin my 6 mos old to sleep ALL night

Alisha - posted on 12/13/2009 ( 3 moms have responded )




I started giving my son cereal at 4mos and at 5mos I began to give him cereal in the morning then bottle throughout the day Then at supper I give him vegies and a fruit with a bit of cereal on occations I read that when you first introduce the fruits and vegies to do so in small portions so there body can adjust Anyways At 8 I give him his bath then I read him a book then I sit with him in the rocker with the lights off and feed him his last bottle before bed He falls asleep instantly By 1 hes up and wants to eat again and sometimes he will wake up again at 5 then go back to bed until 8 I am really good at getting up now BUT It would be nice to get to sleep all night

My daughter is 5months now and since she was 5 weeks I would bath her every night in lavender bath wash and give her a massage with the lavender lotion and she has been sleeping through since..
