At what age does a baby sleep through the night?
Around what age should a baby, or did your baby, go to sleep at night and sleep like six or eight hours? Right now my son goes to bed around 10:30 or 11:00 and wakes around 2:00, then I get him back in his bed around three after nursing and getting him to fall asleep again, and he wakes again around 5:30. Back in bed by about 6:30 and wakes around 9:30. He is four weeks old. Is this normal? At this age should I be putting him back in his bed after nursing while he is still awake so he falls asleep on his own?
My baby began sleeping 6-8 hours at around 7 months.
But all babies are different. Some begin sleeping through earlier, and some not until much later.
4 weeks is FAR too early to be expecting a baby to sleep a long stretch, or put himself to sleep. Your baby’s pattern (eating every 2-4 hours) is 100% normal. As he gets bigger he will begin to go longer, but it would be unreasonable to expect him to sleep 6-8 hours for quite a few months yet.
Parents, did/does your baby sleep in a crib?
I don’t think i could ever put my baby in a crib. Within my family and my husband’s family 4 babies have died from SIDS in cribs. My baby sleeps in the bed with my husband and me. She is 100% safe and if she needs me i’m right next to her….but when people come to my house they’re like where is her crib…i was just wondering who else puts their baby in a crib
My baby has slept in her crib since she was 3 months old. Before then I had her in a bassinet next to my bed. She does not sleep that well, so I have tried co-sleeping at times and she just gets so excited to have mommy and daddy next to her that she does not sleep in our bed, just crawls back and forth between us.
Since you have such a family history of SIDS, I do not blame you. I would also keep her in bed with me. Once she passes the age for SIDS, you may want to consider a crib, or just put her direcly into a bed. I say, whatever works for you is what you should do.

As any parent will be aware, good quality baby sleep is an essential basis for a child’s future health and development. The pleasure in seeing a baby sleep is hardly measurable but having to see (and hear) your baby when they just won’t or can’t go to sleep can be torture for a parent.
To help in solving a baby sleep problem and to teach your baby to sleep through the night, getting your baby into a regular, fuss-free, sleep routine is so important.
If you haven’t already, you should seriously consider establishing some sort of bedtime routine for your baby. Routine helps to establish baby’s sleep pattern and once it is established your baby will be happier, more content, and more likely to sleep through the night.
Here are several things you can do to establish a bedtime routine for your baby:
Most of us have some kind of winding down routine before we go to sleep and this should be no different for your baby. Perhaps the sleep routine could begin with a bath, followed by a slow dimming of the lights (so they realise it is getting near to sleep time), then a change of nappy or diaper, putting them in the crib or cot and finishing with a bedtime story or lullaby.
You don’t need to follow the above routine to the letter, you may wish to do it in a different order, or have a different routine entirely, but the important thing is that you create a baby sleep routine that you follow night after night after night until it becomes a habit for your child.
Whenever you begin this routine, your baby will know that sleep is expected to follow. Babies and infants are creatures of habit, they enjoy the predictability of a sleep ritual and so a regular routine like this can help settle your baby more quickly and also increase the chances of him or her sleeping through the night.
Providing a routine and the same sleep environment each time is crucial to providing the ideal scenario for restful baby sleep.
You should begin a bedtime routine in the early weeks of your baby’s life if at all possible but if your baby is already older than this, just get a routine established as soon as you can.
If you already have some sort of sleep routine for your child but they still have a baby sleep problem, take a close look at the bedtime routine you have created for your baby to see if can be improved.
You should also create a daily naptime routine too when it is feasible to do so as this helps night time sleep very much.

how many parents let there baby sleep on there tummy?
i know that babies are to sleep on there backs to reduce the chances of cot death and i always put my 8 month old on his back to sleep but i have a friend who says its the only way her 5 month old will sleep and i am just a bit worried
i know it should be their just a bit tired to worry about grammer lol
Babies will sleep in whatever position is best for them. As already said times change, and with it the advice given. When my children were babies they all slept on their side with a rolled up blanket positioned at their back and front so they wouldnt roll on to their back – because at that time you were advised not to let them sleep on their backs! Once they were old enough to move themselves two slept on their stomachs and one slept on his back, and it was pointless trying to move them because they just rolled back into the position they obviously preferred.
Why won’t my baby sleep?
My wife and I can’t figure out why our baby never sleeps. I here from almost all parents that new babies sleep about 18 hours a day. Well here is our babies (3 weeks) schedule:
Sleep 5-6 hours a day
Be awake and move around or be fussy the rest of the time. And for some reason our baby always has to be held or he won’t stop moving or he’ll start crying. I know the whole “he feels comfort as he did in the womb” thing but dang. We are just wondering if our baby is abnormal with the no sleep or what?
Sounds like your baby is colicky. You need to put your baby on a schedule. At 3 weeks if I remember correctly, baby should be eating probably around 4 to 6 ounces at a feeding. Don’t allow him to eat and doze, the nurses when my babies were young had me just tickle their feet a little to keep them alert. They sleep a little better if their tummies are full. Also you may want to ask your doctor if your baby needs to try a different formula sometimes they are sensitive to ingredients in the formula .If you are breastfeeding, you could be eating things that are causing gasor otherwise making him uncomfortable. Also make sure you and your wife take care of yourself. Sleep deprivation and a crying baby can be very stressfull. Take a break once in a while and ask someone you trust to help with the baby.
any one else used asda/george baby sleep bag/and other brand?
i bring yestrday george baby sleep bag,2.5 tog for 10 pound,any body else used it?and is it good quility or warm ,its has very big hole for arms,baby can get cold through it?and what we should use for arms?her hand was cold last night, what about mothercare’s baby sleep bag,they also have small arm hole,or any other brand that u found best?and what about mother care walk in sleeper(2.5 tog) with arm,any body used that?
she is 3m and 18days 6 kg, i bring 0-6 size
I love baby sleeping bags, and the ones in Asda are just as good as the expensive Grobag- they are the same tog warmth and made of the same material. Just less than half the price! I find that my baby needs a lot more clothing than they advise though, but you’ll find the level right for your baby. In this weather my son wears:
long sleeve bodysuit
2.5 tog sleeping bag (usually Asda, we have a Primark one too).
Feel your baby’s tummy, or back of their neck- not hands or face- to see how warm they are, and adjust the baby’s clothing accordingly. Babies’ hands do get cold- this is normal but if you’re concerned pop a pair of cotton mittens on her. Don’t use additional blankets.
The grobags for 0-6m should have poppers under the arms to avoid them slipping out. Also make sure your baby’s head cannot slip under- if it can your baby is too small for the sleeping bag.
Where to put my baby to sleep?
Im in vacation at my patents house and I have a 2 month old baby. He’s been sleeping eithe in his car seat or next to me I’m not sure it’s safe for hom to sleep on either and Im not spending I’ve 100$ on a crib. What do you think I should do? Should a playbin work or what?
Car seats are not a good place to let a baby sleep. Since they are in a curved/sitting up position they are not flat and it lowers their oxygen levels. This puts them at risk for SIDS. Also there’s the danger of entrapment or entanglement of the straps, and also there’s the danger of the seat tipping over and something being over the baby’s mouth. It’s just not a good sleep surface and should only be where they ride in the car.
Sleeping next to you CAN be safe, if the mattress is firm and there’s no blankets/pillows around. Also so long as you’re not drunk or hopped up on pills or something cosleeping can be safe.
Another option would be to have your mattress on the floor and make a separate bed right next to it. A playpen can be alright for a short-term period and you may be able to find one on craigslist for $30 or so. You could try second-hand stores, or you could even ask around your parents’ friends and see if someone has a crib you can borrow. You could even buy something like a travel crib and then return it when you’re leaving (not exactly honest, but… Better than using the car seat.)
