because s(he)'s 7 months old! I know it seems like everyone elses baby is sleeping through the night by 6 weeks old, but it just doesn't work that way for everyone. My older daughter didn't start sleeping through the night till she was 17 months old, and my 11 month old still doesn't sleep through the night.

Now that being said, most babies are quite happy to have some sort of routine with a pretty regular bedtime. At 7 months our bedtime routine was take a bath, put on jammies, and then nurse to sleep (or rock to sleep if she didn't fall asleep nursing). It's up to you to determine the best time for bedtime. Watch the cues of your baby, and you should find the right time for bed.

How often is your baby waking at night? How long is the longest stretch of sleep? How are nap times?

What time is he or she going to sleep? How often are they waking at night?
