No: Gender has nothing to do with infant sleep. Bad sleep is usually caused by bad habits. Try to start a bedtime routine early and try to get your baby to fall asleep in the crib, by themselves.

Sleep tips: 1. Maintain a regular bedtime and awakening time schedule including weekends. Get up about the same time every day, regardless of what time you fell asleep.
2. Establish a regular, relaxing bedtime routine. Relaxing rituals prior to bedtime many include a warm bath or shower, aroma therapy, reading, or listening to soothing music.
3. Sleep in a room that is dark, quiet, comfortable, and cool;.
