I have a boy who was 3 years old when he started sleeping through! I did try everything from medicine to what ever! He will sleep when hes ready,dont push it.

Have you tried getting her into a routine?



We breastfeed my son first, give him a bath, after his bath we feed him a vergetable, then I breastfeed again. That usually puts him out.

"One word for u" @ Teresia E "RICE" which was prescribed by a team of Doctors from one of the best hospitals. Rice sure does stick to your ribs!!! Later

Routine is the best thing. I also got the Johnson & Johnson nightime body wash and lotion. Give the bath and do a baby massage the same way everytime, then food (I gave a little cereal and breast milk) and bed. Could be a re- assurance issue as well. Something else you might check, some infants don't like wet diapers at all, maybe he is wet ( even if it seems minimal) and doesn't like that feeling.

One word for you.... CEREAL!

I'd check with the Doctor but if every other check up has been routine and your baby has no underlying issues I'd GO FOR IT! Sounds like this growing boy needs something to stick to his ribs!

Hello
I agree with Tracy H. I give my daughter rice cereal right before bedtime and she sleeps through the night. Good Luck

try giving your son a bath before bed, that always works for my daughters (Hailey 4 yrs & Alexa 1 yr). make sure his diaper is dry and he is fed before you put him down for the night, although i don't recommend putting cereal in his bottle. if he's teething he might be in too much pain to fall asleep, i have encounter that problem with my little one. i came across some homeopathic teething tablets, witch you can find at almost any drug store. i have found them more effective than oragel, mainly because they have no taste to them and they work right away.

with my son i have him taking a bath between 8 and 9 at night and then he nurses and goes to bed and if he wakes up during the night i'll let him fuss unless he is in a full out cry even then i wont pick him up. i'll give him his nuk and rub his head a little.i found that not letting my son nap as long (only taking 2 one hour naps a day) has also help cuz he is more tired towards the end of the night.

Do you have your baby on a set schedule?
Babies can not stay up during the day because they will become stressed and this interupts a good nights sleep. Also, If you feed your child during the night they will become accustomed to getting up. Try putting your baby on a strict schedule. For example, my son goes to bed betweem 8 and 9. He wakes up with me before 6. He is at day care for 6 and naps for at least one hour before lunch and naps again between 1-3. Then I pick him up at 4 and he plays until dinner time. Usually around 6. He has a bottle for bed when he is sleepy. (8-830).
I try not to give him anything to drink other then his bottle past dinner time because if they wet themselves during the night, this will cause them to wake up.
I always put a scoop of rice cereal into his bottles to help fill his stomach. The key is to make sure they are well rested & have a full tummy.

I too would have questions. Is he sleeping too much during the day? Is there something that stimulates him at night, i.e. night light, music? When was his last check up. Ear aches, teething, stuffy noses can all keep a child waking through out the night.

Is he waking up for feedings? Is he awake to play? Is he just cranky? How many hours does he sleep at a time? At 7 months, there could be a combination of things, one being teething. Try the bedtime routine: Warm bath, lotion massage, warm bottle...and off to bed. Before bedtime, make sure he is stimluated enough where he is just ready to relax. Good Luck!
