We are trying to get him to sleep through the night with no luck

Hi, Levi is now 9 weeks old and we are trying to get him to sleep through the night with no luck. We can get him off at 7 or 8pm and he will wake at 1am for a quick feed which we do quietly and quickly and straight back to be but when he wakes at 4am you have no chance of doing the same. He is doing regular 4 hour feeds. Our first boy, 13 months now, was sleeping through after 10 weeks. Levi is 9 and shows no indication he will. HELP!!

Maree...
Answer: Hi,
It is unreasonable to expect a 9 week old baby to sleep all through the night. You might expect to be offering 4 hourly feeds until about 3 months and then drop either a 10pm or 2am feed around 4 months and then drop the last overnight feed around 6 months.

Cheers, Maree
