My little man was 3 months on 16th. He has had a pretty good sleep routine since he was about 4 or 5 weeks old. I have gradually got his bed time back from 12 to 10pm. I'll give him and extra long feed before i put him down and he'll sleep til about 4 or 5. then he goes back to sleep for a couple of hours before waking for another feed. Since ive been keeping him awake and more active during the day he has been alot easier to get to sleep at night.

I thought I had a poblem with my baby because i am breast feeding but i see that we all have the same problem. for those who gave the bottle you can give you baby some baby flour (without gluten) 3 tea spoon that you add to the milk, this help the baby getting full and sleep better my friend did it and her daughter now sleeps from 11.00 to 6.00

My first two were bottle fed so they were sleeping through the night by about 2 months, but my 3 month old just had her first whole night without feedings a couple days ago....She usually goes down by 10pm, gets up around 4am then again right before her Daddy gets home (betwee 8-9am), unless of course her brother and sister wake her up with all their hustle and bustle of getting ready for school (around 630am)

Hi



My daughter was 3 months on 20th Feb and we have a routine where we feed her at 6pm then she goes down at 7pm and we wake her at 11 for a feed and she then goes through till 7.30am ish . What milk is your daughter on ? My daughter has a lactose intollerance and had a really sore belly and colic in the evening until we switched her milk to "cow and gate Pepti Junior" does she have normal poo's ? could be the milk that is upsetting her

My son was born the same day as your daughter!! My son has been sleeping through the night since just before Christmas!! I give him a night time routine which I have done since he was 8 days old and even from 8 days old he would only wake up once a night for a little bit to eat and then go straight back to sleep!! xx

it seems that every baby is different and that there is no answer. However there are a couple of things that should make her sleep a little longer.. maybe not thru the ight. You should maybe try and feed her an extra ounce or so before bed. And also if you notice that she is only eating an ounce or 2 in the middle of the night then she isnt really hungry she is waking out of habit, i would start to ignore the night time wakings or give her a dummy rather than ignoring her.



My boy was 3months on the 4th Feb, he wakes at around 11 and again at 3ish Iam starting to notice that he isnt really hungry at 3ish... I may try the dummie....



Good luck xxx

Hiya. my son turned 3 months on 10th of this month. His sleeping habits range:
sleep for 2 hours, feed, sleep for another 2 hours, feed again & burb. Sleep again for 2- 3 hours then sleep till 1pm.
Then the next night he may sleep for 7 hours straight.
No pattern except the variety!
Good luck, i'm sur our wee darlings will settle into a good amount of consecutive sleep soon...any day now :)

Now that we have moved our 3 month old out of her bassinett into her crib she is sleeping much better. I think her hands would touch the sides of her basinett and wake her up. I started really bundling her up (extra blanket, little hat, etc) and using a space heater in her room because I think she gets cold at night. She is sleeping all night now!

I know it is your first,but really don't rush her.  Babies are supposed to have a crying/waking period around every four hours or so until they are 4 months old.  Those babies that are "sleeping through the night" are probably just not crying. With my 3 m old she typically gets up 1 time, my older daughter was up every 2 hours.  If you are bottle feeding and want to stop her getting up do one less ounce every night.  I personally waited until my older child was 5 months before pushing it.  I've been lucky enough to still be nursing now and I only let her nurse until she comes off the first time.  Again, I won't be pushing it for another couple of months.  Believe it or not, you are going to miss that time with her.

My son is now 3 months old. Sometimes he sleeps through the night, but sometimes wakes up 2 times. I don't think it is a big problem.

my daughter is 3 months old and has been sleeping thru since about 4 weeks. Her last feed started off about 11:30pm and I have gradually brought it back to about 9:30pm and waking about 7-7:30am. Sometimes she wakes ay about 5 has a little cry (but we don't go into her) and she falls back to sleep. The best advice I can give is try to be relaxed around her and then hopefully she will be too! Good Luck :)

Forgot to mention: my daughter has a serious case of gastroesophageal reflux disease, we've been struggling with this. Also, one more mention: the only times she sleeps longer than a 2-hour stretch at a time is when she is in the swing, she can sleep up to 4 hours at one time (what a beautiful night that is for me, to finally get a deeper sleep myself!)

My daughter turned 3 months on Febr. 1st and she wakes up every two hours at night. Luckily, all it takes is to feed her a little bit, most of the time this is enough to put her back to sleep. During the first 8 weeks of her life, she would wake up every 1-2 hours, and each time she needed to be rocked and sung to, and carried in the arms, and bounced, hours in a row. I don't know how I'm still alive with how sleep deprived I have been. At the same time, her cousin who is only one week older, has slept for 7-8 hour stretches at night since he was born.

My baby was born 11/30 so she won't be 3 months until the end of the month. I agree with pp that every baby is different, but both of my girls were sleeping through the night by 8 weeks. She was 11 weeks on Sunday and slept 9 hours straight for the first time last night. Before that she's been doing 5-7 hours at a stretch. I feed and change her around 10PM before I go to bed.

My daughter turned 3 months on the 7th and she's been sleeping through the night for about a month. She eats about 6 oz of formula with 1 tsp of rice cereal in it and she normally won't wake till 7am. I normally feed her around 10pm...if she eats a little earlier she'll wake up earlier, eat and go back to sleep.

My son is the same age and we started with a routine of keeping him awake after7-7:30 every night. If he gets sleepy, that's when we usually start a bath, then feed, by the time he's all done with that, he's ready for bed. The majority of the time he sleeps from 10-5, but occassionally he gets up at 2:30 for an ounce or 2 or a diaper change and back to sleep in under 20 minutes. We have recently been putting him on his activity mat and letting him wear himself out.

mine doesnt sleep thru the night yet either. He will be 3 months in a week and although he goes to bed at 7 he always wakes up btwn 1-2 and then 3-4:30. After the last wake up I put him in his swing as he wont go back to the crib. The past few nights he has also gotten up at 10. I have tried to feed him more but after a point he wont take anymore or falls asleep and is absolutely crashed. The book "the baby whisperer" has some good ideas and advice if you are willing to see it through.

My daughter turned 3 months today (Feb 11) and she has been sleeping thru the night since she was about 8 weeks. At first it was about 7 hours but then I moved her from the cradle to the crib and she will sleep 10 - 12 hours. She will go down at 11 pm and when I go in there at 10 am she is still sound asleep and I have to wake her up almost every am.

my baby will be 3 months tomarow, the 12th, and we are not even close to sleeping through the night, she is up every 2-3 hours. But i know there is a growth spurt that is supposed to happen right around 3 months so i am hopping that with in the next few weeks when this will end and  we can start to sleep longer...

My son is three months tomorrow and I get up that much too. He has acid reflux so that probably has something to do with why he wakes up that much. But its definately rough not getting more than 2 hours of sleep at a time!! All babies are different but just know you are not alone!

My son started sleeping from 10-5:30/6am around 10 weeks. But we kind of forced it on him too. We were in the habit of getting up to feed him whenever he cried, but my husband would give him a pacifier while he made a bottle. Eventually our son would fall back asleep while he made it so we experimented with our "snooze" button. We put the pacifier in his mouth to see if he falls back asleep. He would sleep another hour or two, so he was waking up by habit. But once he starts spitting it out and fussing every few minutes we feed him. But after about a week of that he started to make it through the night. Sometimes he wakes up looking for the paci now. I think he would sleep longer if we didn't have to get him ready for daycare around 6am.

Tianna started sleeping though the night at 6 weeks. But she went from feeding every 4-5 hours during the day to every 3 hours. Usually she only did one side for around 15 minutes but her first and last feedings of the day she feeds both sides for 15 or so. Some nights i end of giving her breast milk in a bottle after pumping that way i know for sure how much she has gotten so she will go down for the night.

Are you a stay at home mom? I have noticed that once I started Izzy at daycare, she was sleepign longer at night. I think the noise really wore her out. Otherwise, maybe lay her down in the afternoon out in the living room so it is not too comfortable and maybe then she will sleep less during the day and be more tired at night....

Babies also go through growth spurts at pretty much any given time lol. My son eats 8oz every feeding. And he eats only every 3-4 hours, but at night it's like 12 hours without eating.  Just talk to the doctor before you start the mum mum cookies, otherwise they consider ir child abuse. Man it seems everything you do it's considered child abuse, it's ridiculous.

With a teething baby it is normal for them to get up, but you're saying she was doing that before she started teething?! You trying to keep her awake is a really good idea. Helps her adjust the timezone a bit. The more you do that, the more she might sleep at night when her teeth come in. But I think each tooth that's coming in lasts about 7-10 days. It seems like a really long time. SHe is actually able to digest the cookies? I am thinking about getting some pablum for my son, but the nurse told me not to do that :( Does she always seems hungry at ngiht or do you know if it's the pain that's waking her? I know I'm not looking forward to the teething part

Lol my son was the same way. I was breastfeeding at the time too, so it was hard to get up and feed him with no energy. Started formula so my husband can help feed him. Have you thought about getting a little swing for her. My son normally falls asleep in his swing. Maybe your daughter will do the same.

Maybe once you notice her falling asleep, burp her. Then she might eat some more and feel full. And as for the teething thing, that might be the reason why she's getting up. Have you tried the baby orajel?

My daughter will be 3 months on the 24th and she started sleeping 10-12 hours straight through the night after I transitioned her from the bassinette to her own crib. Before that, she was up every 3 hours on the dot. Maybe try a differnt place of rest....

My son started sleeping through his nights when he was about 6 weeks old. You just gotta make sure they're getting their fill on their food. That may be the reason your daughter wakes up, or maybe a diaper change. Other than that the only thing you can really do is hold her, comfort her. She may have gas pains too. I;m sure you'll be able to figure it out

[deleted account]

My daughter also turned 3 months on Feb 6. She doesn't sleep through the night yet, in fact she's gone from waking once between 11 pm and 6 am to waking every two hours the past week. It seems every baby is unique, and they keep changing their sleeping habits ayway, but I'm hoping we'll sort the nights out soon.

Hi, My first daughter started sleeping through the night at 2 months, however my 2 month old still wakes up at least once during the night.  It really depends on the child. I found my first drank a whole bottle before bed, so she was full, while my second only will drink a few onces before bed. I trhink that is why she won't sleep through the night.
