... I agree with most of mandy's points, but not all. Yes, breast fed babies typically do not sleep as well at night. I think that like she said, try to feed him a bit more at night. If he needs to nurse once in the night, I would say that is normal. ... (10 replies)

... ards to swollen gums or drooling. They always got diaper rash. I agree with the tylenol, it always helped us out. Keep up with the routine. Your kids will go through MANY sleep changes.
