Sleeping Through the Night. 

All parents love to say those words. I remember my cousin, who had a baby five weeks before I did, got her baby to sleep through the night within the first month. I was thinking, “oh good. Maybe my baby will be like that.” HAHA! Fat chance, bro. Over a year and a half after he was born, he has only slept through the night once… almost twice! And that has only started in the last week. Children are wonderful little things and it’s amazing how different each of them are. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that baby number two will sleep through the night within the first six months. 

Have any of you had issues with sleeping through the night. I’ve heard that breastfed babies have more trouble doing that because they metabolize breastmilk faster than bottle fed babies. I think that’s part of what happened with my son and I. We just stopped breastfeeding about a month ago and that’s when he started sleeping better.
