My son is four months and wakes about every three hours, more in the early morning. The ped we visited recently said, "The only way to fix him from night waking is to let him cry it out." I am NOT AT ALL comfortable with letting him do this. He is breastfed and I am in the process of trying to get him in the habit of falling asleep without the boob. He naps about four times a day, for about 30 minutes each time. He'll nap longer if I let him sleep on/with me.
We have a routine sleep routine/bedtime. Bath, song, lavender lotion, nurse, rock, sleep. 8:00 pm every night.
What is your baby's sleep pattern like? How about naps?
Any tips for helping baby sleep longer/wake less without making him cry himself to sleep?
When did you baby start sleeping through the night?
