  • She probably doesn't have a big enough stomach to sleep through the night yet. Until she can eat enough to make it through, she will wake up hungry. My son didn't sleep six hours straight until he was four months.

    But you can try a white noise maker in the room. A simple space heater set on air only will work, or you can buy special sound makers that have white noise as one of the choices.

  • I say try not to let her sleep much during the day. I know it's hard and it sounds mean. But that's what I did with my daughter, she's began sleeping through the night since she was 3 wks old. I was also cheating and would give her a bottle of formula at night, since I was breastfeeding her then. I would also give her a bath at 9pm everynight and still do and put her to bed.

  • They are not supposed to sleep through the night at that age. They have to wake up and eat. Try napping when she naps. Or having your Dh get up with the baby on his day off so you can sleep in a little.
