i guess it depends on the age. around 4 months i stopped getting up to feed my baby when she would fuss, after a few minutes she went back to sleep. i did this for 3 days, on the 4th day, she didnt get up for her 3 am feeding. i had read somewhere that once they reach 11 or 12 pounds (i forget which one) they dont have the nutritional NEED to wake up and eat at night, they are just used to it because it is the routine. so if you break the routine, they forget about it.
and it worked for us. malia is now 7.5 months old and sleeps through the night 90 percent of the time.
