Topic: Sleepless in Oakland (4 msgs / 50 lines)
1) From: Ingrid Clark Zavadoski
 From someone who just made it over back to the other side, I'll just 
chime in and say that after 3 years (sorry!) of my son waking in the 
night, he is finally sleeping through. I found that the best attitude 
to have is that it will pass, and actually I wouldn't introduce solids 
to help "fill them up". There is little evidence that it actually 
helps.  I wouldn't normally chime in on an OT topic, but I just wanted 
to provide a balance to the discussion.

You have a good point, Ingrid. I think the important thing is to realize
that our little ones are individuals, just like us. As a new mother, I was
trying to follow popular writings to the tee - but I listened to a mother of
ten - yep, ten - and she was right. My little girl was hungry, no doubt
about it, and her crying was her way of trying to tell me just that.
The evidence? She had six months of crying nearly constantly. When
I fed her solid food at six months (solid food being her first mushed up
baked potato, so true to her Irish genes on her father side), she slept
and the mysterious colic disappeared.
'Course, can't put that sort of stuff in any sort of study...

You are right Lynne, I shouldn't have globalized! They are all so 
different. And I am not saying introducing solids or feeding more is 
wrong -- just that it doesn't work for everyone. (Been there!)

Yup - I totally agree.
