Sleeping Through the Night


I have a 6 month old baby boy. I know all babies are not the same, but I was hoping that he would sleep through the night and he still does not. He eats well before his bed time, which is about 7:30pm. But he wakes up about 2 times a night for his bottle. We feed him about 6oz of formula. Will we ever sleep through the night? What can we do?


Work towards being up only one time at night by seeing if he will take more than 6 oz. before he goes down and at night feedings. Brand new babies cannot be “sleep trained” but 6 month olds can be, so check out info on baby sleep basics.

Good luck
