Not sleeping through the night anymore!

My DD had started sleeping through the night until we introduced cereal! Now she wakes up once during the night, like last month! Why?? I've heard so many stories of babies not sleeping through the night until they were started on solids... why is DD backwards?

Anyone else with this experience?

First of all~ Solids leading to STTN is a myth! There is no scientific correlation!

Secondly~ There is some scientific evidence that solids, especially before a baby is physiologically ready(before six months, can lead to disruptive sleep patterns because of intestinal upset.

Thirdly~ Rice cereal...eh. Not needed!

I don't think the cereal has anything to do w/ her sleeping, my dd is ebf and was sttn at 4 months, but now wakes up at least 4 times a night, my other kids were bf and all had cereal at different ages (4-6 months) and all had different sleep patterns. I have read a lot of posts on here saying, no carbs, rice is bad, and its only empty calories, but IMO unless you have an underweight or FTT baby, its fine to give them some cereal.

my daughter is exclusively bf and she used to sleep through the night and now wakes up 2-3 times to eat, or with gas.... maybe its my diet affecting her, maybe its just sleeping patterns that change.
