My son is almost 8 months old. He has been sleeping all night since he was 5 weeks old. He has the same bedtime routine, and he goes to bed at 9:00pm, just like he always has. He just recently (like 2 weeks ago) started waking up at about 12:30am or 1:00am wanting to eat again. He then drinks an 8 oz bottle, and he is good for the rest of the night. The doctor told me to stop giving him cereal, because he has a problem with constipation. After I stopped giving it to him he began waking up in the middle of the night wanting to eat, so I started giving it to him again. He is full after each feeding during the day, and he is also full after his bedtime bottle. Is this just a phase? Is there something else I should do for him? Please help!Answer Question

**Check with a doctor before ever using Karo** Karo makers themselves warn against the use of their products in infants (botulism).
Teething or a growth spurt are normal for this age. If the cereal is giving your son constipation please stop using it. I know sleep is important but waking for one feeding is a very small price to pay as compared to the pain of constipation in your precious infant.
