hi all my kyds slept through the nyt from about 3 weeks old, and that was without giving them rice in there bottle, try keeping him/her awake more through the day it will make a difference try it and see x

The bottom line is that every child is different, and that sleep patterns for each will be different. My son was 3 YEARS old before he slept through the night, regardless of whether he was "full", while my daughter was less that a year old when she began sleeping through the night. Both of them were well fed, and the amount and type of food they had made no difference in their sleep patterns.
My son is almost 8 now and he requires less sleep than the "typical" kid and seems to be on a more adult pattern of 8 hours and my daughter, age 5 can easily sleep for 11 to 12 hours if I let her.

as soon as you start making him. My daughter is 5 months and sleep through the night and has since about a month an a half old. I also give my baby a cereal bottle at night which tightys her over all night from 11 or midnight to 9 or 10 the next morning. Iv got my tips if your curious.

are you breast feeding that could be part of it .breastmilk doesnt keep them as full as formula for as long of a time as formula.

my daughter just started sleeping thru the night and shes 9months, she would wake up 1 or 2 times id hand her a bottle and she would go right back ta bed, but when she was younger she would wake up and be very mad lol and stay up for an hr or 2 thats when i started cereal, she did great and it made her sleep better, now she eats everything!!! lol good luck!!!

Try some cereal in the last bottle before bed. My doctor actually recommended this when my son was a baby.

My son started sleeping through the night at about 2 months, then he started waking up and wanting to eat like every 3hrs when he turned 3 mos and few weeks i upped his milk and he now drink 6 oz every 4 hours, but sleeps all night now, hes 4.5 mons now and we feed him pureed foods, drinks less bottles i just substitute one bottle for solid food.
