  • Another one of those things yours is still tooo young for. **smile** At least a few more weeks, and possibly longer. And remember that sleeping through the night is a mere five hours.

  • What we are doing with our little girl is keeping her up and active as much as possible during they day, with noises games, ect ect. Then when it gets to be night time, slowely make things settle down and put her in her crib after a bath with a warm blanket and a stuffed bear, and some soft lulliby music. I know it can be a lot of work, but it seems to be working for us. She sleeps about 5 to 7 hrs with only a few wake up calls for feeding.

    Hope that helps a little
