LO has been on Aptamil Comfort since birth, he is now taking 3 bottles of between 6 and 8 oz a day along with 3 meals. However, he is now waking up during the night hungry. I dont know what to do. He wont take any more milk during the day and wont eat more solids. Just wondering if I change his formula to follow on would this fill him up a bit more? Or any other recommendations to help him sleep thru the nite?
I don't think there are extra calories in follow on milk. I think it just contains more iron then stage 1 formula. I could be wrong tho. Austin is a pretty good sleeper but has taken to waking early just lately so we're trying a bowl of porridge as supper before his bedtime bottle which seems to be going down well. Could you try similar? He might surprise you and want a little bit of food before bed
Thanks, he already has a bowl of porridge before his bath, then bottle then bed.
Tbh, i think i need to focus on getting him to eat more solids. He loves food but is very energetic and I think he sees eating as a waste of time, he wants to be exploring so 5 minutes of stuffing his face and then he cries to get down from table. Hopefully if he eats more solids things will get better.
One more question - could it be that he is teething again? He already has 6 teeth but is def getting more. I hear people saying about their baby not sleeping due to teething but I always assumed the baby would be crying, my LO isnt crying at all, just wide awake!
His nappy is wet in morning but by no means soaking and I cant imagine that would be what is disturbing him. Its so difficult as Ive become so used to getting a great nights sleep! Think i will contact aptamil and see what they recommend.!Thanks!
