Day and night.

For the last 3 weeks.

Am beyond tired.

He's been teething and it's been crazy hot here, both of which probably have contributed but still... My mum's on at me to start him on solids but I don't want to until he's closer to 6m (he can't sit up yet, thrusts out spoons etc).

He takes a proper feed each time. He sometimes brings it back up but not that regularly anymore.

He's pretty big if that makes any difference. I can't remember if there's a growth spurt around now (my elder child never did this, from memory).

Any advice? Not prepared to give him formula: I have a big supply of milk I'd much rather use.

This Too Shall Pass. I know it's useless advice but it's true. My daughter was the same! And this heat will making him so thirsty and I really feel for you.

Are you able to express? Would you be willing for someone to give him a bottle do you can have a bit of rest? No need to do solids yet; hold off til he's ready.
