  • Be patient. Some babies just take longer. My older four were very young when they slept through. My youngest was 21 months.

  • When my son (now 6) was that age, he was very difficult to put down and KEEP down, too. The only things that worked was limiting his naps. If he's still taking two naps during the day, cut it down to one nap. I know it can be difficult when he gets cranky, but get creative and keep him occupied, and no matter what you do, don't let him take a nap in the late afternoons. This way he's good and tired. Putting him down with a full belly helps too.

  • thought i was the only one whose baby didnt sleep through the night. he is 8 months old and i see NOWHERE in the near future that he will be sleeping through the night. sometimes giving him a bath before bed helps though, also when we go on walks and to the park and sit outside all day.

  • Medically 5 hours is considered sleeping through the night so your child may well be doing that. At his age I wouldn't worry too much about it. Make sure his belly is full of breastmilk/formula before going to bed. Try the "No Cry Sleep Solution" book. I used it for my kids at about 1 year and they are both great sleepers now.
