I'm not sure if I should sleep train my 5 month old. He Wakes up 3 times durring the night for feeding and a diaper change. I feel like leaving him to cry would be betrayal and making him suffer. What should I do

You should go with your instinct bc every baby is so different! Mama knows best. We did some sleep training but not much. What really helped our daughter after she grew out of the swaddle was using a sleep sack. She felt so cozy and it just made a world of difference! We use the zipadee zip, u can check out their FB page. The zippy has really helped her to sleep longer and more soundly! good luck!

My baby girl is only 6 weeks old and she sleeps through the night I love it but I have also changed her sleeping pattern to be like this. I feed her on demand and as much as she will eat and at around 5pm I wake her up and keep her up until about 8-9 pm feed her and then she sleeps until about 5am

He was on soley breast milk but I had surgery done and now he's on formula. He has 2 bottom teeth now and weighs 21 pounds. I wanted to start him on solids. I was thinking about starting off with cereal

Hey, sometimes when the baby wakes up like that it's because they're hungry and their tummies aren't getting enough to eat. The same thing used to happen to me when I had my son and I started giving him a few spoons of cereal in his milk and it helped him to sleep longer because he was full, what are you feed your baby?

If he's waking because he's hungry, he's hungry. You think telling him to starve will help? if he wakes because he is wet, do you really think it appropriate to leave him like that?
