I am a Dad, not a mom. I joined this sight because I was looking for some help with a question and they don't really make "Dad" sites like this that I know of. My wife and I have a 10 month old daughter. My wife puts her to bed by BFing or I put her to bed with a bottle if my wife isn't home. She usually goes right to sleep. But she will wake up every couple of hours through out the night and will not go back to sleep unless my wife BFs her. We have let her cry it out, given her a paci, and she still wakes up 3 or 4 times a night. She naps for 2 hours a day usually, which is good. Any advice???Answer Question

Try to use the ferber method. I'm sure you can find it online. Try not to put her to bed with a bottle. She might become dependent on that, and always want it to sleep

This is a web site only for moms, sorry. You will be reported.
It's normal for babies to wake until they are 3 years or older. Babies shouldn't be put to bed with a bottle. Bottles and pacifiers can cause problems with breastfeeding babies.
Advice. If your wife isn't there feed food or give expressed milk by cup. Avoid using bottles and pacifiers. Breastfeed at least 2 years. Never let a baby cry it out. Expect your child to start sleeping through the night sometime after 3 years.
