  • My dd slept through the night at 1 month, it could be because she is a good baby, because my son never slept. However, I see the difference in the way they were raised ( I lived with my parents and miserable sisters when ds was a baby), and I know what I did with my dd, is developed a very strict feeding schedule and daily routine, so that she always knew what to expect. I held her frequently throughout the day, and answered her cries promptly, so she could bond with me, and develop a trust for me. Also, as i found out today, that if she doesn't get her "mommy time" she won't go to bed until she does. LOL (I was busy today). So play with the baby during wakeful times, take baby for walks also, the fresh air wears them out. Schedule naptime between noon and 3 pm, and no later, so the baby doesn't get confused. Good luck.

  • Sorry! Theres not really anything you can do. She is kinda young to sleep all night unless you have been blessed with a very good baby.

  • Nothing, the baby will sleep through the night (which is only 5-6 hours) when they are older. It is not recommended to give babies cereal in their bottles anymore since it poses a choking hazard. I don't think that you can begin sleep training an infant until they are over six months old (in my opinion)

  • LOL mama...I had a funny image in my head when you said sleep training. I had some vision of educational babe einstein videos on sleep :-P. Anyway, my babies began sleeping through the night at 3 months on their own. Stopped for a while, and are now back to sleeping. They go down at 10pm and usually dont' wake till 5 or 6am. We didnt' do anything, they did it themselves.

  • Most 2 month old babies still need to eat during the night.

  • What i did with my daughter was go to bed at the same time every night from when she came home from the hospital til about 2 months..she is a great sleeper and has been sleeping all night since about the 3rd week home from the hospital going to bed at 9 and waking up at 1 then back to sleep til 8 or 9..soo its just a matter of how the mother is willing to work with her baby

  • She's only 2 months... most kids that age don't sleep through the night.
    But set a nice bed time routine, maybe swaddle her so she feels nice and snug
    She'll sleep through the night when she is ready

  • my son is three months old & he just started sleeping through the night. I give him his last bottle at 11pm & he sleeps until 5 or 6am. All I did was wake him up through out the day wash his face, change his diaper, rub his back, or tickle him. allowing him short naps only.
    also I just a body wash from johnsons & johnsons that helps babies sleep better.
