Only took a few nights and he was waking only once instead of 3 times and then soon after that he didn't wake at all and he's now 13mths and is a great sleeper. Ahhh love that I have my sleep back
    Self settling is a key...(won't say 'the' key, because it might not work for 100% of families).

    Maybe for some, my son knows how to self-settle and has done for a long time now but he still wakes through the night and early in the morning. I don't think there's any magic cure for crap sleep.

    My ds is the same. We are just having to accept that his sleep sucks.

    It's actually kind of embarrassing to confess your child slept through from a very young age - people either think you're fibbing, or think you're trying to rub in the fact you're obviously an amazing parent or whatever. But in all honesty, it's luck, pure and simple.

    Given how easy DD was a baby, and how much sleep I got with her, I'm really scared to have another, because surely fate will have a chuckle and send me the most difficult baby ever, who never ever sleeps.
    Yep that happened to me dd slept from 6 weeks ds2 didn't sleep for a year with reflux...Oh I wish I remembered that year l

    Jasper the same, he self settled from 6-8 weeks. And woke every couple of hours. Katelyn is rocked or fed to sleep and put in her cot and sleeps amazingly.

    I was one of those mum's who used to get really upset when I used to hear about other babies sleeping through the night. Cause all I wanted was one solid nights sleep. And was constantly asked 'what I was doing" "Did I have a routine" And then got tonnes of 'advice' which I knew didn't work,. cause I had tried it all before.

    One of my friends have a daughter who is 3 months older then my DS1. And she used to sleep a solid 12hrs every night since the age of 6 weeks. And to be honest, I hated hearing about how much sleep she got, and if she complained about getting up at 7am. Cause I so desperately wanted to sleep til then. Cause DS1 at that stage was getting up at 5am.
    Her mother is also friends with my mother, and apparently her mother keeps asking mine, what I am doing wrong. And how they never had these issues when they had kids. It was a constant stab to me, as I felt like I was doing something wrong all the time. And it started to stress me out.

    I totally agree I'm afraid. Its like my DS just found his peace with sleep one day - I really don't think it was anything particular I did or didn't do. It was 15 months until he consistently slept through - felt long at the time, but so much shorter than some amazing parents.
