DS is 4 months. He had been breast fed successfully since day one and has always been a hungry hippo. He used to wake once a night for a feed but in the last 2 weeks he has begun waking 3 times a night for feeds (yawn)
I know he is hungry as he eats well during these feeds and goes back to sleep without any fuss.
I am tempted to start him on some rice cereal to see if this helps with his night waking. BUT... I had intended to start at 6 months as DS's older sister has a nut allergy and I've read that it is more likely that sibling will have food allergies if solids are started earlier than 6 months.
What would you do?
We went for his 4mo needles the other day and the nurse told me I should use "thickened formula" to help satisfy him and when I mentioned my daughter's allergy she didn't say it should be an issue with DS
Does anyone have any advice?
