I am a single mother with a 6 month old and he still won't sleep through the night, he is also teething on top of it. I don't know how to get him to stay asleep and not eat in the middle of the night, he will fight me until the end and one of us has to sleep which is me! I have to be up for work at 5:30 am so it's hard. Any tips on how and what to do for bed time.Answer Question

Sleep is a developmental stage reached in each child's own time. From experience and listening to others the majority of babies sleep through the night closer to 1 yr so please don't think your child is the odd child out for not sleeping through the night yet. During teething there is no way around night waking. Have you tried using Tylenol, teething tablets, or orajel? My only suggestion to you is to get to bed as soon as you put baby down. Cleaning and other things can wait. Good Luck!
Look up Babywise before purchasing. It is quite controversial. In certain states it is considered a "red flag" to abuse by CPS and even the AAP has said not to use its practices.
