Hi ftm here

Baby is 6 months old and since about 3 or 4 months has been sleeping through the night really well

I started weaning him when he hit 5 months just with little purees of veg etc and he did very well and continued sleeping through

For the last two weeks however he has went back to his newborn routine and is waking at least twice in the night for a feed ?

I'm confused as I thought since he's eating more through the day this was supposed to have the opposite effect?

Thoughts?

A lot of first foods are quite low in calories, compare pureed carrot to milk for example. So they need to get the calories in the night. Sweet potato and avocado are quite high in calories it you want to try those

As above. 6 months is also a big sleep regression so this is normal.

We are the exact same! Giving it a week or two to pass before looking at any strategies to change.
