Re: Help! How did you get your child to sleep thru the night?!!

Honestly I think it's personality most of the time. My girls both started sleeping through the night early (DD1 at 4 months, DD2 at 6 months) I am not supermom, I don't do anything different than any other mom I know, it's just part of who they are.

They are different personalities though. DD1 had to be left alone to go to sleep. Once she was tired, I had to put her down and leave her alone. With DD2 I had to walk her down until she was just about asleep, and then put her down gently and let her suck her thumb and listen to her music. If i tried the walk and rock with DD1, she'd just stay awake.
