Hi, my word of advice is be hopeful that your baby will be sleeping through soon but don't expect it to happen, because if you do you may find yourself very let down.
It is normal for babies to continue to wake during the night for quite a while.
I have three little people and have clocked up many many sleepless nights and believe me when I say that eventually your body does get accustomed to lack of sleep..... and sleepless don't last forever.
There is a chance that your baby will start to sleep through and you will get great sleep. But your baby might get a little unwell, start teething,or have a break in routine that might change things completely. It is possible for your baby to go from sleeping through to not sleeping through. This is something that I was not told when I was a new mum and in my view if you know what you might have to deal with then you are more able to deal with it when and if it happens.
My 1st DD slept well between 6-9 weeks and then started to wake a couple of times a night until she was 18 months old. My 2nd DD did NOT sleep, she woke constantly in the night it seemed and some nights gave me 4hrs broken sleep a night, she settled at 2yrs but continued to wake and come into our bed a few times a night until 5yrs. My DS was a great sleeper until he got broncholitis and started getting asthma symptoms. I spent many nights up with him giving him cuddles as he coughed and coughed. For him he hated waking up because he loved his sleep, once we had the asthma under control I was able to help him with sleeping.
I have been a mummy for almost 11 yrs and I am happy to say although we still get the occasional visitor most nights all the kids sleep through. It was hard work all the sleepless nights getting up to kids that somenights seemed to be tag teaming with the goal in mind of totally robbing me of much needed sleep, but it sooooo worth it. smile
