My baby is 6 months old and she should be sleeping through the night by now but she gets up 2 or 3 times a night still. Ive tried giving her rice in her bottle but its not working. Ive kept her up longer, cut back on naps.And when she does get up at night she'll eat 2 oz and fall back asleep. I dont think i have the heart to let her cry it out. Any suggestions??

Why do you think your 6 month old "should" be sleeping through the night? I think most 6 month olds don't sleep through the night, and if they do, you just got lucky! Research has proven that rice cereal in the bottle (or from a spoon) does NOT make them sleep longer. Pleaseread the info at Baby Bottles and Cereal

Rice does not help babies sleep through the night and should never ever be given in a bottle. It is normal for children to wake at night until they are 3 YEARS or older.
