I want help my son to sleep through the night. I don't know if it's such a good idea though. I've read that you should let them do their own schedule. I've also read that waking them up from a nap and playing with them will make them more tired at night. I don't want to do anything that's bad for a baby and I honestly should have asked his doctor today but what's your advice?

It's normal for children to wake at night until they are 3 or older. It's hardwired in their brains. Babies are supposed to breastfeed and sleep with their mothers. That's what most babies do in most places in the world even today. Babies cry when they find they are alone to alert their mothers that they aren't next to them and could be in danger.
