Baby Sleeping Yet?

Hey, My little man just reached 3 months on the 7th and he confuses me with his sleep habits.
My older son was sleeping thru the night at 3 weeks and sleeping 12 hours a night by 3 months, but this little one just isnt quite there yet. 2 nights last week he slept 7 hours straight, but then the next couple nights he was up every 3-4 hours. Last night he slept 5 straight, then ate and slept 5 more. I know every baby is different, and I'm not expecting him to sleep 12 hours straight like my 1st baby, but is there anything I can do to get him sleeping in a more consistent schedule?...

Any one else going thru a baby almost making it thru the night?
let me know how old your LO's are and how they are sleeping so I know if I was was just extrememly lucky the first time or if I'm doing somethign wrong this time around?

Babies typically don't sleep through the night for quite some time. My little guy is almost 4 months old and his sleep schedule at night varies a lot. Sometimes he doesn't wake up for 6 hours, other nights he wakes up 3 times in 6 hours!


I just noticed you posted this 3 months ago...... oh well!
I hope your little guys is sleeping better these days!
