My son (Ethan) will sleep in his crib after a nice warm bath and a wonderful cearel bottle, but ehen he gets up at 3:00 in the morning he will eat, get a dipear change, and play for a lil bit then ready for bed. I have tried rocking him and putting him in his cribhes sleeps for maybe and hour then wakes up and then wants to get in the bed with me. After his bottke in the middle of the night hes wants to sleep in the bed with me and i cnt sleep, because i am to worried that i am going to sufforcate him of somthing

girl i know that's gotta suck! i've read a lot of baby books and most of them agree that unfortunately it's 100% normal for a newborn to wake up for several feedings all throughout the night. especially if you're breast feeding bc they digest that a lot faster than formula and will need to be fed abt every 2 hours to keep their tummies full. But, the books i've read also say that anywhere from 2-6 months they will quit waking up so much and establish a regular sleep pattern. this isn't true of all babies but all you can do is stick it out and try different things that might help calm him and put him back to sleep easier. hope things get better for you girl!! hopefully i don't have the same trouble when mira is born!! lol.
