    Hi Jharkcom,

    Congratulations on the birth of your son and welcome to the Baby's First Year Community. Sleep has always been a new mothers biggest complaint. I think as early as a few weeks, while you want to still feed baby on demand, it's ok to try to start getting a routine. When your little one wakes up at night, I would strongly encourage you to get up and feed your little one. Try to keep the lights down low and and make it as quiet as possible. Try keeping him up more during the day and play with me.

    Dr. DuMond wrote a good article on how to get your little one to sleep through the night and when you should expect them to. Check it out here .

    Good luck and let us know how things go!
