When they climb out: The easy answer is when they learn to climb out of their crib. Some toddlers learn early and some never try and climb out. Once they do, it is safer to have them in a bed low to the floor. That can be a toddler bed or just a low bed with a rail to prevent falls. I always say the longer in the crib, the longer you sleep! ...Read more
Varies: Babies vary on when they begin to sleep through the night. Breastfed babies often sleep an extended period within the 2-4 week after birth, but may still wake up at night for at least one feeding. Some people feel adding a little watery cereal at bedtime by spoon may help stretch the one long sleeeping time during the night, but it usually should not be started until about 3 mos. Of age. ...Read more
At what ages can I start sleep training my baby? She's 2.5 months old and the minute i put her in bed she starts screaming.
At birth: The best time to start sleep training is now. If a kid is fed upon waking, changed after, entertained until tired & put down alone & awake, they learn to settle into sleep. If you make carrying, rocking or feeding part of the go to sleep pattern, they cannot separate from you.You can start over now with the pattern above & let her fuss, checking her every 5 min until she accepts the change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sleep hygiene: Try a new routine at bedtime, maybe avoid afternoon naps a bit, make sure she is in a quiet dark room without interruptions or noise before bedtime.

7m old baby wakes 1.5hrs once in night breast feed and sleep.is it cause of concern. he does this even after eatin well at night before going to bed?
Advance Solid Foods: Infants this age grow rapidly & require adequate nutrition. Solid foods are routinely introduced at age 6 mos. As infants advance w/ solids, breast feeding gradually becomes supplemental. Nighttime feedings are still fairly common at this age. If your baby is progressing well with solids, returns to sleep after night feed, has normal growth/development at doctor visits, then no action is needed. ...Read more

You need to sleep to be a good mother. He needs to quiet himself - not easy at first. ...Read more

Bad habits: A baby should be taught to eat waking up, and never when going to bed. Cereal in the bottle has never produced a proven benefit on university study.
