Is anyone's baby sleeping through the night yet?

Hello, my name is Kaitlin. I have a 2 year old son and a 10 week old son. In your opinion, is 12 weeks too early to start "teaching" your baby to self-soothe while putting to bed?

Hi, Kaitlin! My baby girl will be 9 weeks in a couple of days and I have been letting her "self-soothe" for a couple of weeks -- as long as she has eaten and her diaper is clean. She's very temperamental and will wake up when we try to put her down, so letting herself cry herself back to sleep is the only way.. the most it's taken is 10 minutes of cry...

Hi Kaitlin, My son is 10 weeks old today and is still not completely sleeping through the night. When I had my first I would rock him until he was asleep and then put him in his crib. Now with my second, I put him in his crib while he's awake and he usually falls asleep within minutes; however I do swaddle him and give him a pacifier (which he spits out most of the time) and I find it helps him a lot.

experts say 6 weeks is the perfect time to start sleep training! i started mine a few days ago and its going great, my son is 10 weeks old today! we have just established a routine of bath, bottle, snuggle and sleep its working really well so far!

Each one of my kids have been different with sleeping so I think temperment is the biggest factor. My oldest was up every 3 hours the first 3 months, my second slept through the night after 1 week.

I've used pacifiers and swaddling to help but also let them cry a bit before running in and often they fall back asleep themselves.

I think 10 weeks is a bit young for real sleep training. My little guy is still working out his sleep schedule, some nights he'll go 7 hrs other nights he's up every 2-3.

If things don't settle out by 4 months that's when I usually start with a bit of self soothing work.
