What do you think about newborns sleeping in their pram at night?
I live in Italy where the common practice seems to be putting baby to sleep at night in the pram for the first 3 months or so. I personally find this a bit odd / potentially unhygienic. Any thoughts?
IF it were a pram like this,
Then I don’t see a problem with it. ITs basically like a bassinet.
As long as it were clean, it wouldn’t be any different from using a bassinet. Besides, germs are every where. I wouldn’t be hauling it in my house if the wheels were full of dirt or anything, but if it were clean it would work just fine.
Now my stroller on the other hand would not be good for letting a baby sleep in.
When did your baby start sleeping through the night?
My son will be three weeks on Monday..I was just wondering when everyone elses babys started to sleep through the night and if there is anything you did to encourage it..
This question just gives me horrible flashbacks! LoL My little girl didn’t fully sleep through the night until she was almost 2 years old! For the first year, she woke up exactly every 3 hours to eat and usually it would take me about an hour to get her back to bed (if I was lucky). After she was a year old, she would constantly be waking up b/c she would lose her pacifier, which would mean I’d have to get up, turn on the lights, etc… I finally got rid of the pacifier and she has slept through the night every since!
Most babies won’t sleep through the night until they are about 7 months and some until they are over a year. Of course, there are the lucky moms that get babies who always sleep through the night. It really just depends. If you’re having trouble, the best thing is to have a set schedule and routine. Here’s a good website with tips on getting your baby to sleep through the night!
Why would my baby Cow and Gate ready to feed cartons than Cow and Gate powder?
My baby slept through the night for the first time after a day of having cartons rather than powder-he’ll drink far more milk from a carton than from powdered bottles. Following this day he now cries when given powdered milk and refuses to drink it. The cartons are very expensive-is there another option?
The easy answer is, the cartons don’t taste like complete rubbish. Have you ever tasted the two? Powdered formula really is quite unpleasant, whereas ready to feed formula is quite sweet, like evaporated milk or sweetened cream.
The calorie content is the same so one shouldn’t fill your baby up more than the other, and it be a co-incidence that he slept though. Or it could be he liked the milk more so drank more of it therefore wasn’t hungry in the night.
I think you need to just offer the powder again, he’ll take it eventually. You could try him on a different formula as they do all vary in taste. Aptamil is a bit sweeter.

Online store for good baby bedding?
I’ve been looking around online (not many good stores in my area) for nice baby bedding sets. However, everything is very expensive and I can’t seem to find any girl bedding in light blues, aquas, or greens. I’m not anti-pink, but the rest of the nursery is blue and green, so I’d like it to match. Can you think of any good sites for quality crib bedding that won’t cost a fortune?
Huge selection. This is where I ordered my daughter’s bedding and room decor. Fast shipping, good customer service.
At what age should a baby bed be converted into a toddler bed?
I have a baby bed that converts into a toddler bed. My daughter hates it but loves to sleep in a regular bed. She’s only 17 months old and refuses to sleep in it at all. Should I convert her bed to a toddler bed and try that? I have an 11 year old but he always slept by himself. I am out of options and want her out of my bed!!!
They say 35 inches or if the child can climb out of the crib. You may have started a habit with letting her sleep in your bed, though. I’m not sure simply changing the bed will completely stop her wanting to sleep with you. If your daughter is big enough, change the bed and try laying with her in her bed until she falls asleep. It may take some doing to get her used to sleeping on her own but i think you should try to get her to do it. I think it’s better for everyone that way.

What is a good way to get your child to start sleeping in a normal bed?
from baby bed, to a twin size childs bed…and what is a good age?
I started my children off in their own beds around 2 and a half to three years old. I would take the child with me to the store and let her choose her sheets. That way they have “pretty” sheets and let them also choose a comforter. Then help them put the sheets and stuff on. Also let them pick out a cool nightlight.

Suggestions on how to get a breastfeeding baby to sleep through the night?
My daughter is 12 months old and wakes up about every 2 hours through the night to nurse. Weaning is not an option right now. Has anyone had success getting their nursing baby to sleep through the night, or at least wake up less? What worked for you. Thanks
My son is also 13 months old and nurses intermittently throughout the night (we co-sleep). We’re also working on curbing that behavior. I don’t know about your child, but mine does not seem to be eating enough solids during the day to sustain him throughout the night, necessarily. At least, he isn’t eating enough during the day for me to be confident that he doesn’t need nursing sessions at night.
However, I do have a resource that I’m working on using for myself that might also help you — Elizabeth Pantley. See her website below. She has a book called “The No-Cry Sleep Solution” and in it she helps you teach your baby to self-soothe WITHOUT crying it out. She breastfed all four of her babies for extended periods of time, and co-slept with them as well, and still taught them how to sleep through the night. I highly recommend you try out her book (or at least check out her website, there is information there) or e-mail her (she replied to my email!) She has a special section for night-nursers and a technique called “Pantley’s Gentle Removal” for teaching your baby to sleep without nursing all night long. This method also allows for night nursing when your baby is hungry, and helps you to know the difference between comfort nursing and hunger nursing. Good luck and congratulations on extended nursing!
When did your baby start sleeping through the whole night?
My baby is already 8 months old and still wakes up each night. she only wake up once, around 3 or 4am. i give her her bottle, and shell go back to sleep… but shouldnt she sleep through the whole night already? i put her to sleep around 9pm with a full belly. when did your baby start sleeping through the night and what advice can you give me to help me?
Perfectly normal. There seems to be a lot of expectation for babies to sleep through from just a few months old, I’m not sure why! My son was 10 months when he started sleeping through the night and I considered myself lucky. Lots of babies don’t sleep through by a year!
Edit: And there’s nothing you can really do… Just be patient and give it time!
How many hours should a 5 week old baby sleep during the day?
And is it bad if the baby sleeps all day and all night sometimes? I’m getting worried cause my baby has been doing this for a couple days now and she doesn’t even wake up to eat. I’ve been forcing her to wake up and eat .. Could she be sick?
While newborns can be expected to sleep about 20 hours a day, they are ALSO expected to regularly wake up to feed. They just don’t STAY awake for long. She should be waking up at least 8-12 times a day to eat.
Does your baby thoroughly wet at least 1 diaper for each day of her life? That means at least one on day 1, at least two on day 2 etc., until she gets to 5-6. And does she poop at least 2-3 times a day? (Once on day 1, twice on day 2, 2-3 times all subsequent days.) If not, she is probably not getting enough milk yet and has too low energy to wake up because of it. This is called silent malnourishment.
Is your baby perhaps a bit yellow? Her skin may look almost a bit ‘tan’, and the whites of her eyes may have a yellowish tint. In that case she is jaundiced, which can also make babies drowsy. A doctor can determine if her jaundice is still within acceptable levels or whether she needs to be put under special lights, and in the mean time feeding her often (and yes, waking her to feed) can help flush out the toxins to help clear up the jaundice.

What’s an effective way to get your baby to sleep in the bassinet?
My baby is 3 weeks old and simply refuses to sleep in her bassinet…she will only sleep right next to mommy or daddy in our arms….I don’t want her to develop a bad habit of never sleeping on her own. Do any mom’s or dad’s have any advise to get their baby to sleep soundly in their own bed? Thank you!
I don’t have a sound answer, but what we did was not be quiet during the day, made sure baby knew it was day time and that things were going on. At night, it was only whispers, no overhead lights, quick diaper changes, etc. We didn’t try to get our son on a schedule or anything until after 6 months of age. Until then, we listened to his needs. Their wants are their needs. They don’t know anything else other than they need comfort.
And just to make you feel a little better about creating a bad habit – do you know many children who don’t sleep on their own? I know when they are little, more babies sleep with parents, but of all the children I’ve know over the years, they’ve always ended up sleeping alone

What age and weight did your baby sleep through out the night.?
My daughter is 6 months old on the 18th of this month.
She weighs 14lbs and 1oz.
She was small through my pregnancy
So what age did your baby sleep through the night without wanting a night feed?
She wakes up at about 2am and then 6am for feeds but won’t go back to sleep after the 6am feed.
She’s on 3 meals a day, but doesn’t take anywhere as much milk as she used to.
I want her to sleep the night any help?
My daughter is 3 months goin on to 4 on the 14th and sleeps from 10:30 to 9, it’ll take some time for your baby to adjust they sleep in there own ways but what can help is a night bath it helps relaxes them and I use the Johnson’s bed time lotion the smell is so soothing try doing that hope it helps(:
How long should a 8 week old baby nap during the day after sleeping through the night?
My 8 week old baby sleeps through the night, but during the day only naps 30-45 min after every feeding. Is this normal?
Babies sleep alot!!!! Up to 20 hours a day!
When do babies start sleeping more through the night?
I know this is kind of good for a newborn but before 4 weeks he was sleeping 5 to 6 hours a night. Now that he’s colicky he wakes up every half an hour crying in pain.. I know that could last 12 weeks or longer..
I’m just wondering for my curiosity; when babies sleep through the night.
My babies were 2 months and 6 weeks, but then again, I am very lucky and in the minority!
How old was your baby when he/she started to sleep through the night?
I have a 1 month old daughter and she wakes up every 2 hours at night to eat. I know it’s different for every baby (my sister in laws first was 9 months and her second was 6 weeks) but I was just curious when you all had babies sleeping all night long?
None of mine slept through the night before 8 weeks. Keep in mind that technically sleeping through the night means from midnight to 5 a.m., so it’s not like putting them in bed at 8 and then not hearing a peep until the following morning. It’s exhausting, I know. My youngest is almost a month old now and I’m just glad if I can manage a good 2 hours of sleep at one time before he has me up again. But, since I’ve been down this road before, I know it won’t last forever. Just try to get extra rest when you can.
how many hours should a 4 and half month baby sleep?
how long should a 4 and half month old baby sleep at night. and is it normal for them to sleep all night? how long during the day?
Oh girl if your 4 1/2 month old is sleeping through the night Thank your lucky stars! He is just fine! Depending on what time he goes to bed and you go to bed, I would get him up for a bottle before you go to bed. My son at that age would go down at about 7:30 and my hubby and I not to bed til 9 or 10.
So I would just wake him up and give him a 5 oz bottle B4 I went to bed and he would sleep til 6:30 am with out getting up. Feel lucky most mothers aren’t as lucky! My sis has a 18month old who still wakes 2 time a night! Jujst as long as he is eating bigger bottles durring the day and is getting enough OZ don’t worry! And at that age when my son slep almost 12 hrs at night then he would take 2-3 naps durring the day, first nap at 8:30 in the morning for an hour, second nap at about 12 noon for an hour or two then third nap at 4 for about an hour. Sometimes he wouldn’t nap at 4 if he took longer naps earlier in the day. If you are afraid he isn’t gettin enough food watch his weight gain. My son was the same and now he is 9 months old and 21 lbs and almost 30 inches long, he grew just fine! Good luck!
How to get my baby to sleep through the night?
I know all babies are different but when is the average age babies tend to sleep through the night? How can I help my baby sleep thriugh the night? When should be his last solid feed? just befor ebed time?? or a bit earlier etc….My baby is 8 months old now…
The first answer summed it up perfectly, there is no average age. My first baby slept through the night at 6 months. My second slept great, waking oinly once or twive until 3 months. Then she started waking anywhere from 2 to 5 times a night. She’s 4 months and nights aren’t getting any better.
when did your baby sleep all night without waking?
i consider myself VERY lucky…
my 9 week old son sleeps from 8-5am and then 6-7:30 am.
Of course it would be great if he could go from 8pm-730am without waking but thats probably a little farfetched.
When did your baby sleep through the night?
You are one of the lucky ones! My daughter was maybe 6 months and my son is 4 months and sleeps from 9:30pm-12:30am the 1am-6am. I seen our pedi yesterday and he has 3 kids of his own and is head doctor of the practice, he said after 14 weeks of age train your baby to sleep, No one is born knowing how to sleep, we have to teach them. So put your baby down when you want it to be their bed time and let them put themselves to sleep and keep them in their bed until you want them up for the day. Of course feed them but do it in very dim light and right back to bed. Do not rock them.
How to get a 1 week old baby to sleep through the night without needing held the whole time?
What is the best way to get a newborn baby to sleep at night without needing to be held constantly to be content and fall asleep? Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
**sleep deprived mom**
I had to do this with my first son for months and am not really looking forward to doing it again, as much as I love to hold and love on him during the day, at night I need as much sleep as I can get to keep up with him and my 4 year old.
****I know that baby needs fed, we breastfeed so we are up every couple of hours anyway, thats not what i was asking, but was wondering if it is possible to train him to sleep in the bassinet during his down time instead of being in my arms all night. I am also scared that if I fall asleep while holding him I will drop him.
Just put the baby in the crib!!! Let it cry a little. It’ll be fine, I promise!! One thing that did help me was taking a shirt that I wore the day before that still had my smell on it, and putting it in the crib/bassinette with her.
You just have to be tough mama!! You can do it! See below…
How do I get my 6 month old to sleep during the night and not the day?
My son is 6 months old and he wants to sleep all day and not at night when he should. Every time I try to get him to sleep at night he throws an awful fit and screams bloody murder. I have tried everything they say to do (bathing him, feeding him, etc.). He has been changing his sleeping routines also. When he was 3 months old we thought we had him sleeping like a normal baby. He went to sleep at 9pm and was awake at 5 or 6am. The problem really boils down to him sleeping during the day. Once this boy is asleep there is nothing you can really do to keep him awake. Im dieing for a good nights sleep. I know every Mom is in the beginning but this is just crazy and from what I have been reading, most babies sleep at night at this age. So the question is, what can I do to keep my baby boy awake during the day (except a nap or two) and want to sleep at night instead?
You will need to prevent him from sleeping so basically you could try 2 hours before bed to give him less feed and more water so that he is comfortable but not full and stimulate him with toys or put him in a door swing or walker for exercise… Keeping him upright will keep him awake and break the sleep cycle. Then once its his proper bedtime give him his feed and he shoud be exhausted and knock out do this process again during the day so that eventually you get him to sleep less in the day. This worked for me and i advised my neighbor about this and she said that it really helped too.
Once you get this nailed…only then will the baths etc… Work by making him even more tired before bed. The trick is if babys belly is full he will have no reason to stay awake so give him 2-3oz less and after about 15 minutes rest put him in a walker, followed by door swing etc… This will also stimulate him and get him crawling, walking sooner and therefore he will want to stay awake and play more during the day. Also cut one night feed out and replace with water to stop him from waking in the night for feeds… Do this once you get him to sleep at night.
