you could try feeding him every 3 hours during the day and force him to stay awake after eating for a bit of wake time. he'll end up sleeping less during the day so he might be sleepier at night. we did the babywise method with lorelai and she was always a fab sleeper.

I agree with your friend Becca. Every three hours during the day: Eat, awake, sleep. You can start spreading this out only after he sleeps (I think the book says it's) 8-10 hours at night at a time. All three of my boys are Babywise babies and were sleeping through the night at 3 months.

It's hard to change a schedule when you are frustrated and tired and don't know if it will work. I can tell you ANY changes I had to do with mine ALWAYS took 3-5 days for them to get used to it. So there is an end in site! Hope that helps!

Yes Babywise works wonders!!! Ben eats every 2-3 hours during the day is sleeping 7+ hours at night, eating and sleeping another 4-5 hours! I have the book if you want to borrow it?
