  • if he is 7mo. you should at least be giving him baby food........that might help..........My son was eatting alot of food at 7mo.

  • yea...try feeding him baby food at least 2 times daily now since he is old enough...and I was told with my first daughter to put a piece of lettuce next to her crib..sounds weird but it did work..she NEVER slept at night at all. but one i did the lettuce thing it really worked she only woke up 1-2 times in the night.

  • My son did the same thing at that age (well eariler actually) and still is getting up at least 2 times/night and he's 8 months. We haven't found anything that works.

    What does lettuce do??? That is the weirdest thing I have ever heard... I'm going to have to look that one up! LOL

  • I dont understand why people still assume that if you put cereal in a babys bottle it will make them sleep longer?! My son has had to have cereal in his bottles from day 4 because of acid reflux. He didnt sleep thru the night til he was almost 3 months old.
