Hi all,

I just had my third child 11 months ago. We are still having trouble with is sleep habits. He still won't sleep through the night. We put him down at 8pm and he usually wakes up around 3am-5am. I breastfeed him then put him down. Sometimes he wakes up before then. Sometimes he wakes up after. But he never sleeps the whole night through. We tried putting him down later, and that just seems to make it worse. His doctor said that we need to just check on him and let him put himself to sleep. But that just involves him crying until he falls asleep and I am not comfortable with that. Especially since I have 2 other children and a husband that needs to sleep as well. I never had to go through this with the other two, so I am not sure how to help him out, or if this is normal.

Please help

Thanks. He is actually getting better. Last night he was able to put himself back to sleep every time he woke (3 times). But it shows me that he is ready for weaning. Like you said. It happened when he was ready

I was also wondering if it was normal that my son who is going on 11 months still doesnt sleep through the night. I bottle feed but when he wakes he just wants me to hold him until he falls back to sleep. He is now putting himself to sleep. I always rocked him to sleep since he was born. He usually wakes around the same time too. 2-5 am. I never let him cry himself to sleep either. I think eventually he will just sleep throught the night. I see this post isnt very recent so jw did it get any better yet?

ok because his doctor said he should be able to sleep about 11 hours. I thought that was a bit much. Some nights are better than others, but I guess he will eventually stick to a normal sleeping routine and not require a middle of the night feeding. Thanks for the reassurance.

He's still getting 7-9 hours sleep, that's considered "sleeping through the night".
Yes it's normal.

Thanks, that actually makes me feel better. At least I know that it is ok to continue feeding him at night. I was beginning to think that I was making matters worse.
