Babies: 3 - 6 Months

Sleeping threw the night???

My son is almost 4 months old and is still waking up at 4am every night, we give him a bottle and he's back to sleep till 7:30. I'm a FTM , any tips on getting him to sleep threw the night?!?
He goes to bed at 8 pm every night.

  • 8 hours straight IS      THROUGH    The night.  I'm at 5 mos and we still have nights like this.

  • My daughter is 15wks old and has been sleeping through the night since 11-12 wks. She goes to bed around 7pm then when I go to bed around 10-11pm I give her a bottle, she doesn't even wake up she just drinks it lol and goes right back to be with out any fuss and sleeps til around 6-7am. I think that last bottle really helps.

    Is this post for real?

    You're expecting way too much from your young baby. A lot of babies don't STTN, and I mean 11-12 hours until one year or even longer. Be happy with one wake up.

    Sounds amazing to me. Count your blessings mama! Eventually he'll drop the MOTN feeding on his own I'm sure.

  • Yup that's a good night :). A very few times our son has done 8-6 (but that's rare).

  • Yeah my DS did that until around 4 months and then the wakefuls started.  Almost 2 months later we haven't gotten back to that yet, we are up 2-3 times a night again.  Enjoy it while it lasts!  I miss sleeping for more than 3 hours straight!

    This is really not that bad - he's sleeping 8+ hours. I wouldn't expect much more at this age! Some babies do and some just don't for a while longer.

    Thank your lucky stars! You have a good sleeper!

     

     

  • Unfortunately, I don't think there is anything that will or will not make him sleep straight through to 7:30. I know it may not feel like it, but that is considered STTN. My LO has slept 12 hours since 2.5 months. That's very unusual. I figured we would have MOTN feedings until at least 6 months, that seems to be more of the norm. Sounds like your baby is having a great night sleep! Hopefully he'll transition to 10-12 hours as time goes on. GL!

  • If you don't want him up at 4 am, you could try to move his bedtime back... But later you'll just be trying to move it up again. You could also try a dream feed right before you go to bed if it's several hours after you put LO down.

  • My LO has been going to sleep by 8:30 and will wake up around 3:30 to feed, then back to sleep. For a few nights in a row last week she was sleeping through the night. Actually she would wake up a couple times but fell right back to sleep with a paci. However, she was going through a growth spurt, demanding more food during the day and sleeping more all throughout the day. Now she's returned to waking up once a night after about a 7 hour stretch of sleep, which I think is great! I have tried feeding her a little more during the day, and "topping her off" before she goes to bed, but she still wakes up. Have you tried giving him a little more to eat throughout the day? I know this works for some. But also realize that his current sleep routine is great!

    At 4 months our daughter would wake up 1 time during the night usually around that same time.  Then one weekend she just slept through the night.  We thought it might be a fluke but she'll be 6 months next week and will only wake up when her paci falls out.  We put her to bed around 9-9:30 with a bath and a bottle.  If she wakes up  at night we put her paci back in and she continues to sleep till about 7.  We consider ourselves VERY lucky.

  • Wake LO up before you go to bed (10pm) and give them some more food. This is what I do and it helps them sleep even longer (because they are not waking up because they are hungry). Good luck!!
  • Not to repeat what others are saying, but you are very lucky to only have 1 feeding. My LO is 12 weeks today and he still feeds 3 times during the night. I can't wait for only 1 feeding a night.
  • 8 hours with one feeding is really good!  I guess you could try to switch up his schedule by waking him before you go to bed for a bottle, but waking a baby might backfire on you big time.  And not to beat a dead horse, but threw vs through...sigh.

  • That's great. My daughter just turned 6 months on Sunday and has been getting up every 2 hours, every night! I think she's comfort feeding but you are lucky! :)
