    Default Solids and Sleeping - 5 Months old

    Hi everyone,

    Just after a bit of advice..

    DS is 5 months old and I started him on solids a few weeks ago. Im currently giving him a tablespoon of farex with a heaped teaspoon of a vegie ie carrot, potato etc. I have only been giving him one veg at a time to check for allegies and only in the morning after his first BF. He just gets through this much so I havent offered more as i'll let him lead.
    The last few mornings he has been waking at around 5am (rather then his usual 7am) and its a fight to get him back down.

    Should I give him another meal after his last BF which is at about 7-8pm. Would this be the reason he is waking early?

    I know everyone is told different but I was told not to introduce a 2nd meal until he eats half a cup for his morning feed....

    Sooooooooooooooo confusing haha

    Thanks!

    IMO sleeping and solids don't have much correlation.

    Could he be cold? That is the coldest part of the night/morning.

    If you're certain bub is warm enough at 5am, id say introducing a night meal is the go. Dont worry about the half a cup rule, i didnt follow that and bub is fine.

    If bub still wakes early after 1 week I'd start introducing meat as well (protein fills bub up).

    Good luck.

    I don't think he is cold (except last night I know he was brrrrrr!) but I have set the heating to come on at 4.30 for half an hour to take the chill away... Just to check.

    I have started feeding him solids in the late afternoon, rather then night so it settles in his tummy... Fingers crossed.
    Otherwise I don't know what else to do....
