    Hi, I really wouldnt be expecting him to sleep through the night for a few months yet.
    Ewan still wakes during the night and he is 16 months, although there was a period where he slept through but that was when he was about 13months.

    I tried everything dream feeds, cluster feeds, Some people are just lucky and have babies that sleep through from an early age, i wasn't blessed with one of the lucky ones!

    Sorry hun, you just have to take it as it comes :?

    Jack slept through from about 6/8 weeks and it was great but the last couple of months he has been waking again sometimes twice a night :(

    Lewis will get his own routine soon enough and you will get used to the waking, in fact i bet you end up waking a couple of minutes before he does

    The first weeks are always the hardest but hang in there babe

    Thanks ladies for the replies.

    I know baby Lewis is still young was just looking for tips when he is a bit older.

    He is nearly three weeks old and likes to keep mum and dad on his toes - by sleeping all day and screaming all night the joys.

    Colby had the problem turning night into day, and i couldnt go on with having no sleep at night and being up from 6am with Adele it just wasnt possible.
    When Colby was 4 weeks old i ended up trying to keep her awake as much of the day as possible :twisted: was really hard though cos she would scream as she was so tired, so now im still in the same sort of rota :lol:

    she wakes at 7am has a 8oz bottle
    9am she has her weetabix and about 4oz of milk
    play/annoy her till shes getting grumpy cos shes tired :lol:

    bed for 10am

    she wakes at 1pm
    1pm she has her lunch and a bottle of juice
    play for a good hour

    she goes back down for a nap at 2.30pm

    back up at 3.30
    has her dinner &juice

    playtime again (adele annoys her so mum can get on with other things dinner ect)

    6.30pm bath

    7pm bottle

    and no later than 8.30pm bed and thats her till the next morning



    sorry if none of this helps but it worled wonders for me and the keeping them awake part i only had to do it for 3 days and she went into it by herself

    good luck hun :D
