Hello! This is my first post here. My husband and I co-sleep wiht our seven month old little boy who has never slept through the night. Usually he would only wake up to have a bottle once and go back to sleep. I have talked to his doctor who told me that he is just a hungry baby. For the past two weeks or so all of a sudden he is now waking up two to three times in the middle of the night wanting a bottle. He has also stopped drinking as much from his bottle during the day as he used to and seems uninterested in his solid food. We have only been able to get him to take a couple of bites of his baby food. I know he is teething but that never seems to affect his appetite before. I’m at a loss as to what to do. I have tried to just put him back to sleep when he wakes up but he screams until we feed him, then he goes right back to sleep. Most of my friends are advocates of the CIO method and I am not so I am getting a lot of slack for “spoiling” him. My friends are telling me that we are starting a bad habit and he is never going to sleep through the night. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Can you think of any reason why his eating habits would change? What can I do to help him eat during the day and SLEEP at night? Is there any other option other than just letting him scream himself to sleep? Thanks in advance!
