My LO slept great for the first five months - he would sleep 6-8 hours, eat, and go back to sleep for another 3 hours. Then around 5.5 months, he went through a phase of sleeping about thirty minutes at a time, slightly longer if he was on our chest. We have managed to get him back into his crib, and he's sleeping 2-3 hours stretches at a time. However, getting him to go to sleep is a struggle - I either have to nurse him to sleep, or we have to rock/bounce/walk him to sleep, and it can take a while sometimes.
So my question is this - do you have any tips on how to get your child to sleep easily, or how to help him sleep through the night??
