  • Ride it out.. they sleep all night when THEY are ready to. Typically, parents trying to make them sleep all night just makes them wake MORE instead.

    Sleeping through the night is a mere five hours... it CAN happen on its own at three months. It can happen later. Your kids are all normal... just let baby set the schedule and baby WILL sleep that five hour stretch sooner rather than later.

  • All 5 of mine were sleeping at least 8 hours/night by 2 months, and 11-12 hours/night by 6 months.

  • My first was 6 months and my second is only 2 months old so we are not anywhere close to sleeping through the night

  • I was super lucky with my kids they all slept through the night very early on. I kept them awake throughout the day with one or two nap only if they really seemed to need one.
