My son slept well in his crib up until 4 months. I was one of those people that swore my child wouldn't sleep with us because I have a few friends with children that slept in the bed and they said it was bad. From 4-6 months Charlie woke every 45 minutes and me and dh would take turns comforting him back to sleep. It was about that time I found Mothering. My own mother slept with us and kept encouraging me to just bring him into bed with us. Finally, so exhausted we did. I LOVE IT! And plan to do the same with the next child. We are all sleeping so well. It took some time, but now my son has one great stretch. Thanks so much for showing me the light,

When did your son start having a good stretch of sleep? I am asking because my DD has slept with us since the beginning, but she also started waking frequently around 4 months and is now 6 months and still waking frequently. I am hoping for some light at the end of the tunnel!

He started sleeping well about a month ago at 7ish months. I have to say that it got to a point where I was too exhausted to work, play, anything. So my dh said, spent a night in the guest room and I will take care of Charlie. That turned in to four nights of sleep for me. Our son woke up less than usual, and my dh just offered him bm from a bottle. He woke up between 5-6 times and fell back asleep within 5-10 minutes of crying. Some on this board when disagree with what I did, but it brought my dh and son closer and when I came back into the bed I was fully rested, refreshed and my son just didnt wake as much. He at that point was waking every 3 hours (great compared to the every 45 minutes he did for a few months. Now he goes to sleep around 8 and wakes are 2-3, and then wakes at 5-6 for the day. It worked for us...
