My 14 month old is unpredictable. He might sleep 10 hours straight through or he might be up off and on screaming for an hour every 2-3 hours and the only thing that will get him to stop is nursing him. My older son didn't sleep throught the night until he was 2, then someone gave me the Ferber sleep book and it worked in 3 days and he's slept great ever since. My daughter slept through the night by 6 weeks old and I thought I had it all figured out. That only lasted until she got teeth though and by 2 she was a horrible sleeper just like my son and tried Ferber on her and it didn't work. I eventually had to just let her scream for 2 hours until she wore herself out. After 3 days of that she became a great sleeper too. Nothing works with my 1 year old though, it may seem like it worked, but if I just give it a few days and he'll have another bad night. I know it won't last forever though.
