  • Every parent of a baby wakes up. Some may get exceedingly fortunate in the beginning, but eventualy 99 percent of them have to do nighttime parenting. Sorry to be the bearer of normalcy, but there is nothing unusual here.

  • LOL... my daughter didn't sleep through the night till she was like 13 or 14 months! The good news is once she started she slept for 12 hour stretches! I've had a few friends whose babies didn't start sleeping through the night till around 12 months or later. It will happen, eventually...

  • My daughter will be 7 months next Thursday - she is not sleeping through the night either. Wakes about 3 times a night. Ya just kinda hafta deal with it. Her sleep patterns have changed SOOO many times in these past almost-7 months, but every time they do we just follow her lead & have a flexible routine. I'm sorry, but I just don't have sympathy...not until I start getting some sleep, too, ha!!
