I'm not a regular on this board but wanted to check in and ask for advice.
DS is now over 6mo old and weighs in at about 20 lb. He is EBF. He goes to sleep at 8pm, wakes at 11pm to eat, 3 am to eat, and around 7am to eat. Basically every four hours at night. He continues every 2-3 hours during the day. I have just started introducing solids a few days ago, but he is not really eating them, lol. Which is okay. We also bedshare. At this point when he wakes I try to soothe him back to sleep before feeding and every once in a while he does go back to sleep (we sometimes drop the 11 feeding). He is also eating a bit less at each feeding during the night.
Here are my questions/thoughts that I need help with. Should he still be eating this often at night? My gut tells me to feed him when he is hungry but I have a lot of people telling me to night wean him because this is just a habit and he does not need it. Should I be concerned about the amount he is eating at night or continue feeding him?
I plan on bringing this up with his pedi at his 6mo appt next week (its a bit late) but thought I would ask you ladies first.
