Hey guys



I have a 5 1/2 month old daughter and was wondering what you fed your little ones at this age. She does not sleep through the night. She will wake up about 4 and have a full bottle.

What do you recommend/suggestions??



Thank you

Miranda

Just give feed her favorite solids to her right before she goes down. Maybe that will help. If not than she just needs to eat at night for a few more months.

At 5 and a half months its normal for her to be hungry at 4am. Shes growing:) I had my son wake up off and on till he was eating solid foods.. :) now he sleeps through. Hey sometimes I wake up hungry at 4am.. LOL

Also if the cereal doesn't work, I don't know if you breastfeed or not, but Enfamil just came out with a new product called Enfamil Restful, it digests in their stomache slower than regular formula and helps them sleep better through the night. She is still young and they do want to feed more often, my daughter is just now 10 months and she is finally sleeping through the night. Give it time and you will get your rest.

Do you put cereal in her bottle before bed? If not try it, it will keep her fuller longer at night. Hope this helps...Susan
