Love this thread. DS is 6 months and he wakes constantly wherever he is. He used to be a longer sleeper (like 5 hours consistently when he was little). Now he only does one sleep cycle naps (45 minutes tops) and he wake ever hour or 2 at night and that doesn't matter if he's in the bassinette (where he starts the night) or in our bed (where I always bring him in to nurse after I've gone to bed). I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one. I think part of his problem is he's overtired and Im working on it. I got the No Cry Sleep Solution and No Cry Nap Solution books. DH thinks he should be STTN like our friend's kids, but I think every baby is different and he's a very easygoing/relaxed baby, he just doesn't like sleeping! I don't ever really want him to STTN, I just want one 5 hour stretch at night. That would be great. He's only a baby for a short time, so I can deal with it and cuddle him.
