Night feeding
« on: March 19, 2019, 14:37:21 pm »
Hello! My sweet son is just about 5 months old and has been falling asleep on his own, thankfully, for a couple months. We made it through the 4 month sleep regression and he has been lengthening his naps back out to about 1.5-2 hours( sometimes still 46-60 min). His nighttime sleep has not recovered, however. Before the regression he was giving us a 6-7 hour chunk and then waking 1-2 times. He is now waking every 1-2 hours. We are possibly dealing with teething and we have an appointment with the dermatologist to deal with some baby eczema that may be causing discomfort. But the nightwaking has been going on for 2 weeks. He wants to feed everytinr he gets up at night- tho he will go back down even if heís awake after. I donít follow a schedule but we do follow a rough EASY routine with 2 hour awake times and feeding upon waking. There are times when itís more of an EAEAS routine bc otherwise he wonít make it. Any suggestions? Heís been a good sleeper since birth so this is really throwing us. My daughter is 25 months and boy am I trying to learn from all the mistakes I made with her!

What is causing the eczema? Could there be an allergy to dairy or something else perhaps?
