Hello! My six week old has pretty much never gone more than 3 1/2 hrs sleeping and lately he has been waking up almost every 45-60 min. I have been giving him mylicon for gas and also have started a small amount of rice cereal with breast milk twice a day for reflux per the pediatricians recommendations. Any ideas or advice about sleep? We swaddle him and use the vibrator on his rock n sleeper.
Thanks!

It is normal for him to be waking more often to breastfeed when he is going through a growth spurt, he is trying to build up your milk supply.

Are you propping him up to sleep? Maybe he gets cold or hot depending on clothes, blanket and the temp of the house.
