Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on how to get my little man to sleep better at night? Is there anything to give him that will help him stay fuller longer so he won't wake up as much? We have a routine. Every night, bath, relax time in dimly lit room then put him in his swaddled and feed and rock him to sleep. Am I doing something wrong?
It isn't recommended to give babies ANYTHING other than breastmilk or formula for the first six months unless it is ordered by a doctor.
My youngest baby is 3 months old and she sleeps through the night sometimes, but other times she's up to eat at least once. It is completely developmentally appropriate for them to be waking up like this.
I like your idea of having a routine, that will help down the road when he's older. It's a good habit to get into, but like I said at this age he's just too little to sleep through the night.
You're doing everything right. Routine is key. One night he wil sleep longer and you'll be so excited and then they change and the next week he's up more than usual.
Sorry. It's hard. Embrace it. Welcome :)
