The other moms have it right. This is so dependant on the age of your son. If he's an infant, 5-6 hours straight is all night. If he's older, try consolidating naps and adjust bedtime accordingly. A regular bedtime routine and time are super important. If he's old enough for solid food, give him a decent dinner and a breast or bottle feeding a little before the bedtime routine starts. Should help stave off night time feedings, may still want something from 4-6 a.m. though.

When he does wake at night, keep it dark and minimize yur interaction with him. It should bore him back to sleep. Don't pay any attention to him at all if he doesn't need you, but this does not apply to an infant. Good luck.

i agree with the other posts. try to set a bedtime and a routine. be careful about giving a bath every night tho if he isnt used to taking a bath everyday he could dry out or be extra sensitive to it. i can only give my daughter a bath every other night cause she has sensitive skin. so i dont have it as a bedtime routine. also, how many naps does he take? how long are they and when are they? if he still takes a few naps during the day he may only need one and then sleep all night. another thing that may work but depends on age is feeding him baby food or baby cereal about 30 mins before bedtime. dont rush foods but if he is old enough he may just be getting hungry at night and need something fuller in his belly before bed. hope this helps :)

Well, like Christy I woulda ask how old your son is? My son did start sleeping through the night at 6 weeks, but then again I wasn't able to breastfeed so that might make a difference. I have found that my son sleeps better then some because we have a set bedtime schedual. But, it depends a lot on you, your son and how old he is. Good luck!

How old is your baby? He's not yet three months? My children did not start sleeping through the night until about three or four months, but I was lucky. A lot of babys don't start sleeping through the night until about six months.
