My Son slept big stretches at 12 weeks while my Daughter at 9 weeks, now my 7 week old twins are still in a 3-4hourly and doesn't look as though they are stretching out. I can try the bathing routine but they get bathed earlier on in the night so will see how that goes.Every baby is different so am no worried about it not ever changing, they will do it when they are ready i guess.

my twins are 12 months old and still get up 3-4 times each, we just moved them in the bed with us a couple nights ago and it was soooo much better, now were working on weaning from the bottle at night..:+)

Zo has been sleeping 12-13 hours a night since 2 months.

Babies will not sleep through the night until they are ready.

How about giving baby a bath before bed if you don't already. That should help soothe.

Otherwise... it's perfectly normal for baby to keep waking at night.

My son is now 4 months old but he was sleeping through the night when he was 3 months. He sleeps from 8p to 8a a whole 12 hours a night. I do bath, bottle, story while rocking and then bed something every night except the bath only do that every other night! Works like a charm for me but every baby is different! Good luck!!!

My daughter is now 4months and she sleeps from about 10pm-9am sometimes she will wake up earlier! But she has been on rice cereal since she was born almost BUT she has reflux and couldn't keep her formula down so we put a teaspoon of rice cereal for every ounce of formula and she seemed not as Hungary and fussy at night! Now we started her on fruits and veggies and she is DOING great she loves them!

This is my second baby and I have been lucky with both. My Son now 14 weeks has been sleeping through from a young age. He has last feed at 7.00pm and that's him till 7.00am. I have never woken my children at night for feeds, as I believe that disrupts their sleep. As my doctor said if they are hungry they will wake. Try a good bedtime routine if you havent already started one. Good luck

My daughter started sleeping 6-7 hours a night around 10 weeks but she is now 3 1/2 months and is on the same schedule. I am breastfeeding and they say that she is sleeping great and probably won't sleep more than that until solid foods. She does only wake up once for a feeding and then is back asleep

most people say around 12 weeks, but 'sleeping through' really only means they go 6 hours or so. My 17 week old still wakes at least once a night for a feed. I'm hoping that when i start him on solids he will be a bit better. If not I will eventually try the 'controlled crying' method. Good luck.
