  • if he wakes up because he is hungry, then you need to feed him a little more before you lay him down to bed.

    its easier when you feed formula, you just make it a little thicker...

  • Babies wake up at night. There's not much you can do about it.

  • Every baby is different...Just remember "This too shall pass..." :) My 6 month old wakes at least once or twice a night. :)

  • Please ignore the rude comments that people fell obligated to leave.

    Yes it is normal for babies to wake up during the night but at 6 months it is more normal for them to sleep thruogh the night. Have you tried leaving a cd or music on? This will keep a consistant noise so any other noise out of the blue doent starttle him. Or when he does wake up give him time to put him self back to sleep, if he is still up after about 15 mins then go in there.

  • it's typical for babies to go through a growth spurt around that age... is it possible that is what's going on with your little guy?

    like a previous poster said, this too shall pass. try to keep that in mind momma. :)

  • It amazes me how people can be so cruel when they answer...

    We use a humitfier in our 7 month olds room running partly because she is conjested due to the weather..i wish it would make up it's mind, and also we use wood heat. I found the constent noise soothes her more. She still wakes up a few times but I usually wait a minute or two before rushing in, she usually falls right back to sleep on her own so I don't even need to get out of bed. There have been a handful of times where she needed me to come in a sooth her, and that was when teething just got too painful.

  • When he wakes up, does he scream, or does he just cry? Does he go back to sleep soon after waking? Where is he sleeping? I use a fan in my son's room as a noise-maker. I am sorry to ask you so many reply questions, but the answers to them might help you figure out a reason why he is waking up. Good luck momma! Take heart and don't let those who feel the need to post hurtful things get you down. It's like I say: "If you let ignorant people get you down, you may never get back up." Take care!

  • Im just going to respond to the anonymous user that wrote that rude non sense. Im a mom and in the military....if i can get my baby to sleep through the night then thats what im going to do. You have no right to tell me that i shouldnt have had him and its people like you that make people afraid to ask questions. Get a grip on reality lady. And real nice on the anonymous crap.
