    I am glad to hear that I am not alone. I am worried that he is overtired too. I do usually let him fall asleep on me in bed at night and then I get up and put him in his bassinet. I have tried that during the day too but sometimes I have things that I have to get done like laundry for my daughter. So...
  • Forum Thread: 6 Months and Still No Schedule!

    He eats between 2-4 hours he is eating Similac Sensitive or Enfamil Gentlelease, he likes both and he usually eats between 2-4 oz at a feeding. He acts very alert and usually calm when awake as long as he fed and changed.
