  • my baby is a month 2.she wakes up every hr..2 hours if im lucky.the way to get sleep is 2 sleep when the baby cant spoil a baby for the 1st 3 months of there life.sometimes they just want to be held because they feel safe in your'll be ok trust me.its frustrating sometimes i know but you'll get through it.oh yea and on top of that i think my baby is teething so shes a lil more fussy..i never knew they could teethe at such an early age but i found out there are kids that sometimes are even born with teeth already

  • You can't spoil a 1 month old. And 1 month old babies do not sleep through the night, shoot some one year olds won't sleep through the night. Welcome to Motherhood!

  • one month old babies don't sleep thorough the night! Of course you are losing sleep..that's part of the deal! lol They have tiny little tummies & they wake up to eat every few hours. that is just life. maybe you should read some books about child development & such. not bashing you on this, just saying that if you are more familiar with what to expect you will know.

  • My kids slept through at 4 mo. but some kids dont till later. but on average 4 mo is usually the earliest...yeah I am sure someone is gonig to say "put cereal in the bottle" but doctors dont recommend doing that. Until they can eat more at a time they cant sleep all night because they are hungry.
