  • Sleeping through the night is a mere five hours. And is often not acheived till late in year one.

  • When my son was 2, he still woke up at nite to eat a bowl of cheerios! We'd get them ready & he would just sit & eat. Then he would pull the chair over, turn off the light & go back to bed. Funny little guy. When he was thru with his oatmeal-between his 2nd or 3rd-at breakfast, he'd put his bowl upsidedown on his head! Just enjoy your baby & take a nap when he does. Everything will still be there when you wake up.

  • Cereal in the bedtime bottle will help him sleep longer. I don't care what people say, it's not going to kill him. He will not choke. My son sleeps from 730pm to 730am. It's worked for me for 11 months. Try it. If it doesn't work, what do you have to lose? Sleep? Haha.

    Good luck!
