My four month old wakes up every hour. Any ideas what I can do so he can sleep better?

He wants to eat every time he wakes up. He is already on cereal. I have no idea what to do. I haven't slept in five days.

If you have a swing use it, mine love her swing also, put on baby soothing music and lay him down next to you. Car drive might work also

Maybe he is hitting a growth spurt. They tend to want to eat more when they are growing. OR he is teething and the only thing that may sooth his gums is the bottle.. try gas drops for gas (from eating every hr) and also try a small, less than a pea size, drop of oragel. Hopefully this works. If not, call the doc.

I read that sometimes when you add cereal they don't getvenough calories during the day, breast milk has more fat then cereal there for it keeps them full longer. try stopping the cereal for a day or two to see if that helps!
