  • go fish. 10 week old babies will eventually adjust to thier own schedule but its prety much impossible to force it.

  • Anyone can tell me different, but I highly Recommend

    Gary Ezzo's Book Called BabyWise..

    My sister in law did this schedule with her baby and Her baby is like the happiest , well behaved, slept through the night by 9 weeks old...

    I will be doing this schedule with my new baby.

  • Putting a baby on a schedule may or may not help anything and if the baby is nursing, then a schedule is a big no-no - feed on demand - always. At 10 weeks, a baby's routine is going to change a few more times yet - no matter what kind of schedule you try to impose. Teething, growth spurts, illness, separation anxiety - all will change a baby's sleeping and eating habits.

  • Babywise is a horrible book. Many babies have gotten failure to thrive. BABIES are acting NORMAL.

    Five hours is considered a sleep through. The VAST majority of babies wake every 3-4 hours on average for needed feeds and/or peeing. They wake more during growth spurts, teething, and new milestones. In the first year, sleep patterns change a lot and a baby may sleep a long stretch one week during a growth spurt and the next wake frequently. All normal. Sleep patterns don't really settle into a more mature pattern until age three or four. Some babies sleep a lot in the first half of the year, but end up waking more later. There is nothing "bad" about a baby that doesn't sleep long stretches of more than four to six hours...they aren't bad sleepers as some say. They are quite normal. It's actually we adults who have forgotten how to sleep effectively because we watch the clock too much.
