my son will soon b 6months, and he just hates to sleep. i have become a prisoner to help him sleep better...but nothing seems to be working. i am left very tired, fusturated and cranky. all he seems to want to do is breastfeed. so all i seem to do is comfort him at the breast. i am starting to get the feeling that breastfed babies dont seem to sleep very much. and if i hear one more time "give him some pablum, he will sleep through the night" i am going to sream. can anyone out there relate to this at all??
My son was like that, but like the previous reply, it stopped soon after he was 7 months. He was not delayed at all in his development. His sleep improved gradually as he mastered each new physical milestone. For example, crawling meant 30-minute naps instead of 15-20. Cruising meant 40-45 minute naps. Once he started walking and then running by 11 months, he started napping 60-75 minutes. His nighttime sleep also improved gradually during this time and we were also slowly introducing solids. His first birthday will be here in the blink of an eye and you'll wake up one day and realize how much has improved.
