    Every parent (regardless of what side of the fence they sit on) is affected by their own needs, personal views, culture and lifestyle when it comes to raising kids. Our decisions regarding everything from how to put bub to sleep to when to start solids are rarely based 100% on what the child 'needs.'

    It's rare that a parent doesn't have their kids best interests at heart regardless of whether they co-sleep, formula feed, breastfeed, start solids at 4 months, start solids at 7 months, follow a routine, don't follow a routine.
    I don't agree. Plenty of parents give solids too early just so their baby will sleep through.

    Default Did sleep intervals ever increase?

    I'm not interested in starting a debate over sleep methods or whether he needs to feeds etc.

    What I would like to know is whether anyone who had a similar pattern - 3 hourly waking found that the intervals increased - to four hourly or five on their own?

    If so, when did It happen and did it coincide with anything? Longer day naps? Increased solids? Crawling/walking and expending more energy etc?

    Thanks
    My son was waking every two hours (give or take, sometimes he'd sleep longer sometimes shorter) to breastfeed until he self weaned at 13 months. His sleeping gradually got better after that and he started sleeping completely through the night once he mastered walking at about 16 or 17 months. There is hope! Solids made no difference and I feel that sleeping through or for longer was definitely developmental for him.

    Eta: although there were days where I felt exhausted and over it I am really happy that I didn't force the issue with him and chose let him do it when he was ready.
