Hush little baby don’t say a word…

More sleep troubles.

For the past few nights Aidan has gone to sleep around 9pm and woke around 11:30-12am screaming/crying. I now know – well, am sure – that that’s from his two little teeth coming in!

He just isn’t sleeping through the night. He just turned 7 months 3 days ago and still has the same sleep pattern he’s had for several months. He’s pulled a few all-nighters, but not become regular at it. Isn’t it time??

I just wonder if I’m feeding him enough. Here’s his regular day as far as consumption goes:

  • He eats a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, then will drink a little formula before going to sleep for a nap.
  • For lunch, he has 2 jars of food: one fruit and one vegetables. He’ll have a little formula before napping.
  • For dinner he eats a bowl of brown rice and a little formula before napping.
  • His last meal is a bottle of formula with rice in it.

Since I came to the conclusion that he needs a little more food, I started giving him a jar of breakfast food (BeechNut Good Morning brand) with his oatmeal, giving him a little less oatmeal. I also added a jar of fruit when he eats his bowl of rice for dinner, giving him a little less rice.

Does this sound like too much, not enough, just right?? Input please!!!

  1. Hey, It’s Baby Cakes’ Mommy. BC eats a bit more than that…at times. She is about a month and so many days older than Aidan. Just to run down her daily intake, she has a 6 oz bottle when she wakes up and after she plays for a little while, she has creamowheat, oatmeal or a jar of cereal/fruit, and I offer her nibbles of my breakfast, if I am having a boiled or scrambled egg (something soft) and little tiny bites of toast. She has a 4 oz bottle after her nap and prior to lunch. For lunch she has a veggie and a fruit, as well as nibbling on graham crackers or the veggie puffs. She usually has another 4 oz bottle before dinner around nap time. Then we try new foods (according to what I fix that she can eat)and we are working on finger foods, she loves rice and pasta (she loves the multi-colored spirals because they are easy to pick up), and I always give her veggies and fruit with dinner too. She then has a 4 oz bottle prior to bed. (We were doing 6 oz for every bottle, but she was not taking the whole 6 oz) I think she only weighs about 1 pound more than Aidan. She has days when she doesn’t eat but about 4 to 5 bites out of a jar of veggies or fruit and other days she eats the entire jars. Sounds like a lot!!! I’m sure that giving him the veggies with his rice at dinner will take care of him if he is still hungry. His little teeth are most likely the reason for him waking up. BC is a great sleeper, but during teething she wakes up whimpering a few times during the night.
