9 months

I’m feeling better, most days.

Chase’s Dr said He doesn’t need to eat. Starving kids sleep 12 hours all over the world. Do not feed him for at least 7 hours, do not pick him up, do not make eye contact. Tell him its bed time and let him cry. the first day it took an hour, he slept 6 in a row after that, 15 mins and back to bed after eating. The next night about 40 mins and slept for 6 1/2 ate and back to bed (he eats around 5 and sleeps again til 6:45) Last night he did about6 1/2. I know he can go 7 to 8 hours without a bottle the new problem is he has a bottle at 6 or 7 and goes to bed (we can not stop him he’s miserable) then he wants a bottle at 11 or so and then he gets up around 5, so it would work perfectly if he ate at 9 and slept til 5 but he won’t stay up past 7:30 pm. ) ANY suggestions???

he is getting better slowly, which is great, his timing is just seriously off. He eats a lot of solid food and stage 3 so the Dr said he’s not hungry he’s playing you, but I can’t in good conscience make him got from 6:30 pm until 6 am without a bottle cause he only takes 6oz at a time. Basically we need to shift him up to eating at 8 or 9 and then going to bed…but how????????

    Maybe try getting the extra two ounces into him an hour or two before bedtime (like a night time snack?), then get the usual 6 right before bed? I don’t know. Might be worth a try..

    This is what they do for Baby M and he is about 10 months old. He wakes at 7am, eats, plays, takes a nap between 11 and 1pm, eats lunch, plays, naps at 5pm (only for 30-45 minutes) then eats dinner at 6:30pm. His dinner meal consists of a couple ounces of solid food and 6 oz. of formula. Then again at 8 pm he gats another 8 oz. to keep him full at night. He was waking up to eat during the night and that last bottle helps to keep him full.

    Cut his daytime naps short and see if that helps. Those darn babies think the world revolves around them šŸ™‚

    You’re very welcome hon.
