Every baby is different. My daughter started around 6 weeks, but I know some babies that are the same age, and they're still not sleeping through the night. Try a bath time routine.

Thanks thats exactly what I'm gonna do cuz the doc said if he keeps on like that then she was gonna put him on meds I'm calling first thing Monday morning. I wanted to do it without meds but I feel so bad that he can't sleep at night I mean these past two days I've been doing what the doc told me to do but his milk started coming up again a couple hrs ago so i'll just tell the doc then. Is the med. safe?

I think it truly depends on the child. I am a mother of three. My oldest did not sleep through the night until she was 7-8 months old. My second child when she was 3 weeks old. I now have a third child who is 6.5 months old. He has been sleeping through the night on and off for the last 3 months. Some nights he'll sleep 6-10 hours, other times he wakes up once or twice to nurse. In my opinion, it doesn't matter if they are formula fed or breast fed or if you give them cereal to "fill them up"; they will sleep through the night when they are ready. Hope this helps and good luck to you!

my daughter is almost 8 months. she'll sleep through the night occasionally, but shes been teething since she was 3 months old so that makes it hard for her to sleep. about 100 more people are gonna say this, but every baby really is different.

every baby is different. my first son slept through the night at 8 weeks and i now have another son who is 13 months old and STILL doesnt sleep through the night...so it depends on the baby
