5.5 month old waking for another bottle

My 5.5 month old DS has been taking 4 (almost 8 oz) bottles of Nutramigen formula/ day for around a month. We introduced solids about 1.5 weeks ago, and now he has been finishing almost a 2.5oz serving of veggies or fruits along with approx 2.5 Tbs of oatmeal cereal (late afternoon). His last bottle is usually between 5:30 and 7 and then sleeps straight 10-12 hours (thank you Magic Merlin Sleepsuit). Since he started solids, he hasn't been finishing his last bottle. The past two nights he has been waking up around 11:30p and taking a 5th 8ozish bottle. Any ideas? I know it's only been 2 nights.... Love any tips- clueless 1st time Mumma. Thanks!!

  • Sorry I'm no help. Best advice is just feed him and the phase will pass. Our LO is only 16 weeks and no solids yet. Good luck!

  • Growth spurt? Can't 100% relate, I am BF'ing my 5.5 month old but she just this week went from sleeping 10-12 hours to waking 2 TIMES a night for additional feedings, 4 nights in a row. I know there is a 6mo growth spurt, could be early?

  • I'm thinking growth spurt. Give it a couple more days.
