  • All four of my boys slept through the night by three months. Does your child share a room with you? If so move her in her own room. Make sure you have a bed time routine. I like to give baths before bed for they are soothing to my boys. My twins are 2 and they do wake up once in a great while but they fall back to sleep on their own. I do not get up with them unless they are sick. Often if you leave them they will fall back asleep.

  • My daughter didn't regularly start sleeping through  the night until she was 4years old yup years. My son started sleeping  through the night much sooner but still gets up occasionally. I think it just depends on the child. It is hard but hang in there.

  • Oh honey, My son is 13 months and still wakes 1- 2 times - I think 4 times seems like a lot but I know my son has a heck of a time when teething and even worse time when I dont follow his nighttime routine - do you have one of those for him?
