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

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).

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....
