Sleep/schedule?-15 week old baby:)

When did your child/children sleep through the night or at least longer stretches.
My son will be 15 weeks on Thursday and hasn't slept more than 3 1/2 or 4 hours stretches. We are still getting up 2-3 times a night and he doesn't nap during the day maybe 1 or 2 cat naps thats it..
What am I doing wrong and will this change?
ps: He has acid reflux and colic too...

  • increase his nighttime feedings (like oz wise) and cut back evening stimulation to relax him. maybe add cereal to his bottle. give him an infant massage after a warm bath to relax him. good luck!

  • The reflux and the colic probably have a lot to do with your troubles. Try to keep playtime for daytime and keep your evenings quiet and darker. Baths, massages, snuggles, reading stories...any of these before bed can be very helpful! Good luck!
