How long did it take for your baby to sleep through the night? I am not ready to give up co-sleeping but I have a feeling he would be sleeping through the night if the boob wasn't so tempting. Will he ever sleep through while co-sleeping?

He is 8 months old and wakes up every 2-4 hours still. Usually every 3. Last night he ate at 8:30, 10:30, 12:30, 3:00, 5:00 and 8:00 then was up for the day.

We have a crib in our room but when he goes to sleep in it(a couple times a week) he only goes 4 hrs at the most then I bring him into bed with us. We did side-car a crib for a while but it seemed to just get in the way now that he is mobile and could just crawl to me.

We had the same but I cant remember when she started skipping the feedings. Now she often wakes up at 11 but is soothed by daddy, 2 for a boob and then 5-7 is happy hour where she tries to stay latched the entire time.

I know I keep talking about it but in the book I am reading "the no cry sleep solution" they have a section in there for BF and CS mommies. It is possible

My daughter finally stopped waking around 15 months. She was always up from day one, then it started tapering off. By a year, she was only waking once or twice, then went cold turkey. Hang in there.

Around 15 months for Tessa. Some nights now she'll occasionally wake to nurse or comfort nurse one time, but most nights now she STTN.

DD was a big night nurser, especially when she was too distractable to BF well in the daytime. She started waking 1-2 times per night when she was around 8 or 9 months old (in general--some nights she'd wake more often than that, others less often). From a year to 15 months, she'd generally wake 1-2 times to nurse & that I could handle.

I didn't do anything special to prompt STTN--it just happened with DD.

I remember 8 months to about 18 months being really hard on me. I wanted to wean her at night. Some kids are late bloomers and will naturally night wean as late as 3 years. If you don't want to wait that long I know Dr. Sears has some great ideas on night weaning. Also I would check his site on the high-needs baby because maybe there are some key ideas there that can help? We're at 26 months and dd still does not STTN but I'm ok with it now and learned to manage it for now. I think the books Mothering Your Nursing Toddler and 3 In Bed by Deborah Jackson really helped me ok with it. GL!

I am not ready to wean him at all and don't want to take it away from him if he really needs those feedings. I just have a feeling if we weren't co-sleeping he wouldn't be waking up at night anymore. I am not really ready to give up co-sleeping either though.

I guess I just need to do some reading and really think about what matters more to me. The happy cuddly baby next to me all night, or my sleep. LOL It does help that he now looks to me for comfort and to go to sleep. I love the bond I share with this little man. So far he is such a happy secure baby. He is easy going and falls asleep with no fuss at all most of the time.

We are TTC still though and if I happen to get a BFP that actually sticks I may need to rethink how important sleep is to me.

Thank you all for your advice. I will check out those books and see if anything "clicks" for me.
