Does he need a Food Supplement?
Hi Helen

I have previously written to you regarding my son's sleep (we live in Finland). He will soon be three months, is thriving and takes three naps in the daytime, as recommended by you, sometimes for a short while, sometimes for longer. Depending on when he wakes up in the morning (sometimes at 6am, sometimes not before 7.30am) and how late he has his afternoon nap, I settle him for the night between 7-9pm. He sleeps until 11pm, where I wake him up in order to avoid that he wakes up an hour later.

Then he sleeps for three to four hours. From now on he wakes up every hour until morning, and I breastfeed him every time. He sleeps in his own bed, which he seems to like. As he is a big boy, he weighs a little more than 7 kilos, lenght 65cm, I wonder whether a supplement (formula)would make him sleep longer during the night. Is it all right to wake him up before I go to bed?

Best regards Malene
