    Default sleeping worse since starting solids

    I've lost count of how many people told me my LO would sleep better once he started solids. HAHAHA what a joke! I was really happy with his sleep. Last feed before bed is a 6pm, he would sleep from 6:30ish through for one feed at around 2:30.
    I started him on a small amount of solids this week (1tbl spoon in the morning) and OMG his sleep has lost the plot. He is now waking around 10pm (when he never has before), 12, 2 and 5. And then he is up for the day at 6:30.

    Is it normal for solids to affect sleep in this way?

    I don't think so. What have you tried him on, could be upsetting his tummy or making him constipated. How old is bub?

    My DD too slept terribly when we started solids at 6mths. In hindsight she wasn't ready for it. Wait a bit and make sure you are still doing all your milk feeds at the same amount.

    Thanks ladies. He's 4 1/2 months and started him on the paeds recommendation to see if it helped his reflux. He was having all the same BF plus the tbl spoon of pear in the morning. Doing all the same poos and didn't seem to be in any discomfort when he woke. It's just really strange.
    I stopped giving him "food" yesterday, I was so exhausted! I'll give him a few weeks and see how he goes!

    Reflux bubs tend to have food intolerances and usually are not ready for solids til at least 6 months. I am going through this with my third reflux bub atm. Wait til 6 mths and start very slowly with bland vegies etc .
