My almost 1-yr-old son has been sleeping through the nite since he was about 2.5 months old. He went from 6 hr stretches to 8 hr stretches to 12 hrs straight! Could be he would have done this regardless, but I'm thinking it was due to the principles of one of the best "sleep" books I've ever encountered: "Good Night, Sleep Tight." My cousin's wife recommended it to me when I asked her how they'd gotten their 9 month old to sleep 12 hrs straight every nite. Not only that, but they said if mom and dad didn't lay her down when they were supposed to, she would actually start complaining until they did. To my happy shock, my son started doing this too a few nights ago. Even if mommy wants to cuddle him as he's entering into his sleep window, he actually fusses until I put him in the crib! Since I'm so sleep-dependent, I'm so thankful they recommended this book and just wanted to spread the word to any sleep-deprived moms out there!
