  • sounds like a growth spurt. my son went through 3 of those in his first year. he slept all day and night, only waking up for about an hour to eat, then would go right back down. so it was sleep, breakfast, sleep, lunch, sleep, dinner, and by 6 months he was sleeping through the night but before that he'd wake up for a midnight bottle, then go back to sleep. just enjoy it while you can :)

  • i stopped the night feedings at 6 months. they will keep waking up in the middle of the night if they know they're gonna get fed
