"My 8 month old is a wonderful day time napper giving me 2 hour naps twice a day. However he is still not sleeping through the night and never has. He "snacks" all day with 3 oz bottles and baby food, but doesn't eat big meals. Tried the "cry it out" method and felt so guilty after finding out he had an ear infection. He has had 3 ear infections since nov. We have been back to the dr after this final one, and they say it cleared up. But we are still up 3-4 times a night screaming. He wants to eat when he wakes up and will drink a 7 oz bottle at midnight after drinking an 8 oz bottle at 7 pm. I hate the cry it out method, so is there another method that works? (And no, we are not teething.)"
