Q.

sleep

hi,
i' ll like to know when my 3 month old would start sleeping through the night.He wakes up like 3 to 4 times at night,sometimes he stays awake for almost an hour.I heard formula fills up babies so they sleep longer at night,am doing exclusive breast feeding now.Also,my baby has been drooling excessively lately,could he be teething so early?

thanks

Your baby does show the signs of early teething now. It is possible that he is not getting enough milk as he is staying awake for long periods after feeding. It may be an idea to supplement with a formula feed once at night.
