I was told that they start to settle down at about age 1, does that seem correct? TIA!

That said, yes, what your DS is doing is normal. Some start to sleep better sooner, some don't. For my DS to sleep longer than 1-2 hours, we had to nightwean and move him to his own bed. I waited until he was very verbal and understood what I was saying, which was around 19 months old. Before that he was still waking every 1-2 hours. I think a lot of kids don't start STTN until closer to age 2 or 3 on their own.

Every baby is different. You can encourage night-weaning if you like, although it seems a bit early to me. I know my guy gets half his nutrition during the night. to those who say that eating at night is about comfort/habit and not nutritional need.

I have no tips to offer, but I have noticed that DD's sleep has slowly, if not consistently, improved since she was born. I guess it's just a matter of time, and of just accepting how your LO sleeps. I trust the mamas that say it will get better! (Well, except in the middle of the night when I'm sooooo tired and it feels like I'll ever sleep a decent night again, but I digress...)
