My baby boy who was born on July 19th, he can still wake up, up to 3 times a night. I have tried everything I can think of. Any suggestions? We have tried co-sleeping, giving him a bottle in bed, pablem befor bed, a long warm bath with a massage after, soother, keeping him up late.

my son still wakes up at least 2 times between bedtime (8:30) and when we get up for work (6) almost always. I put him down alone until he wakes up and then he sleeps in our bed after that and nurses back to sleep. bad habits, I know but I get more sleep that way!

My guy just started sleeping through the night about a month ago. We found that he has to have a night light. He seems to be afraid of the dark :(

have you tried giving him cereal just before bed? (maybe an hour before)
or keeping a night light on/off
music on/off
try these things, what i found works is the cereal mixed with a jar of baby food

My son was born July 21st. He started sleeping through the night around 3 months. About two months ago, he started waking up several times a night again. We'd take turns getting up with him, giving him his pacifier & eventually giving him a bottle. That lasted for about two weeks. We stopped using a monitor (his room is just down the hall from ours). With a monitor, every little sound & cry wakes us up. Without the monitor, we usually don't wake up unless he is really upset crying. I felt bad at first because I hate the idea of him crying & me not being there, but he has learned to get himself back to sleep instead of expecting us to come in and help him. He's sleeping through the night again.

My son was born July 6th, he started sleeping thru the night at about 4 months. Then around 6 months he started waking up again. Me and my husband take turns getting up and on his nights he brings him into our bed if he wakes up and on my nights i give him a bottle in his bed. I know your not supposed to do either but thats what works for us. :)

My son was born July3rd and he has been sleeping threw the night since he was 2 1/2 months old. The trick? He sleeps with us, anytime I would lay him in his bed he would "jump" and wake himself up alot. So for us to get sleep and him too, we co-sleep. He loves it, and so do I. I can keep a close eye on him. We feed him right before we go to bed and he can go all night, sometimes he wakes up earlier and will want a bottle and then go right back to sleep and sleep another 4 or so hours it just depends!
