  • I feed him basically everything avacado cereal meats veggies. I was just wondering because my doctor said they shouldn't be waking up to eat anymore at this age.

  • Doc is incorrect. LOts of babies wake at night to eat. Remember the liquid diet is paramount; the solids are an extra.

  • at this stage the baby should sleep whole night at one stretch. If he is not , then too there is nothing to worry because each baby is different. whenever he wakes up instead of directly feeding him try to soothe him first , if he still demands then give only milk and no solid food. Try to increase the amount of milk/formula you feed him just before going to bed , maybe that would help. At 7 months , I gave my baby 5-6 oz of formula before going to bed.

  • Do you feed him solid food right before he goes to sleep? And then a bottle right after?
