I am slowly going crazy as I have no help during the days. What can I do?????? Hubby had to take the day off of work yesterday so I could sleep cause I was losing it.

Well hunni, trey's a big boy who needs to eat lots. And I know it's hard for u to take care of him all by urself. Maybe after mikey gets home, u should give trey to him right away and try to catch some sleep. Just a quick power nap. Any little bit will help. And if not, send trey to lex. Lol then he can play with gabrielle and drive lex nuts lol ;)

Hey jess


my daughter started waking up at night again and I know the feeling! Im prego and so incredibly exhausted I want to crumble and die but hubby has been really good to me and even got some extra help for around the house. Teething sometimes keeps them up at night, try a bath before bed and burn them out during the day go for a walk or two a day without overstimulating I find it helps.

How Old Is Trey Now
I know that it is frowed apon to give a child anything other then milk before they are 6 moths old, but if he is still getting up that often to eat then you could try giving him a little bit of starter cereal before he goes to bed...Before he gets another bottle or breast if you are lucky enought to do that...A friend of mine had the same problem and that is what she did...And her daughter started sleeping longer. But this is just advice of mine, hope you will be able to get some more sleep

My son's been having cereal since 3 months and veggies since 4 months (reccomended by ped and child dietician as he is so big)

and yes jamie 7-8 oz every 4 hours. I am slowly going crazy.

The ped told me to put a bottle with water in the crib with him and he can have that, but it hasn't worked!

Uhm...
Everything i've ever read has said not to give them *anything* in bed like that. Not even water. I don't know, who am I to question a ped. But it seems like he's got him eating an awful lot for that age.

Parents tend to give their babies sugar water or milk, which can rot their teeth(even if they haven't broken through). Water is ok....My son still gets it and he's 3 1/2.

Ya I don't give him sugar water and he can't even really pick uo the bottle yet anyway so there's no point in it being in bed with him. Lol

and he eats a lot cause he's a big boy.
