I would love to get Grace on a scedule for eating and napping. Is it wishful thinking to think it might be possible? When she's hungry, she screams and doesn't stop until she eats. Logically! Also, she will never drink more than 4 oz at a time, so she's eating every 2-3 hours. I was talking to a friend today and she has her daughter on a 6,10, and 2 schedule, and sleeping throght the night totally. Grace is still waking once through the noght at about 3am for 4 ozs. Any suggestions?

No suggestions really. Each child has a different temperament so it's hard to compare. I have 5 and some got into routines and sleeping through the night way faster than others.
I don't think she is doing that bad getting up at 3.

First thing I would suggest is to write down when she typically eats and sleeps (I found that my littlest who I didn't think had a schedule when she was that little acutally had consistant trends). I would then nudge her to the schedule you want. The other thing that would help is trying to get her to eat a little more at feeding....maybe push her feeding back 5 or 10 minutes but then offer her more than 4oz......

Just a suggestion....
