How old is your little one? Sleep patterns can continue to change through toddlerhood. I just try to have a good amount of activity during the day and settle down at roughly the same time every night.

Honestly for me it was pretty easy. I was so exhausted by the time they started sleeping through the night that I didn't have problems getting back into a sleep schedule myself.

Honestly even if I wasn't tired I'd force myself to lay down at a certain time. On the couch or in bed, didn't matter.
Getting the kid(s) on a routine and schedule helps because your also putting yourself on one. I generally stay up 1-2 hours after my older 2 go to bed and it gives baby one last feeding (2 weeks old) while I'm fully awake. He also gets his own routine.

He is 3 months but he has been sleeping threw the night for a month now and I'm still wide awake all night he sleeps for a great 8 hours

My body adjusts on its own. Be warned: he might not sleep through the night for long. Sleep patterns change so much.

He is likely to hit a growth spurt in the next few days which may cause night waking again. Are you napping yourself during the day a lot? Caffeine or food too late in the evening?

You're up all night?!

Idk what to tell you. The second anyone is sleeping I'm sleeping. If you're having that much trouble, make a routine for yourself. Wake up, workout, stay active through the day, and no coffee in the afternoon. Warm bath for yourself maybe after baby is in bed?

And a pp is so right- this could change again so don't get TOO attached to baby sleeping all night.  :(
