@pinkpaisley You don't know what other people's children need. My son didn't sleep through the night until he was 10 months old either. He grew so fast that he needed to eat many times during the night. His normal growth was like a regular baby's growth spurts. He'd wake up every hour during a growth spurt. There was just no way he could eat enough during the day. (He was drinking 6 ounce bottles when he was 2 days old.) My husband and I tried everything to get him to sleep and nothing worked. Making him cry it out didn't work, he'd just cry for hours and no one would get any sleep. Even when he slept with me he'd wake up so I knew he wasn't just in need of comfort or cuddling.Eventually he learned how to fall asleep on his own and his body finally adjusted so that he could sleep through the night. Every baby develops differently. There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with giving a baby comfort when they need it, no matter what time of day or night it is. Don't assume that picking a baby up in the middle of the night will lead to sleep issues down the road.I co-slept with both my older kids, I rocked them to sleep, I picked them up and cuddled them when they woke up in the middle of the night. They both sleep in their own beds without problems. They fall asleep on their own, they have no trouble taking naps. The security they gained from knowing I would always be there for them and that they wouldn't have to cry themselves to sleep is what has made them into confident, independent kids.Parents need to do what they know is best for themselves and for their children. There is no one method (spelled without an A) that works for all kids and all parents. Your method may work for you, but it obviously doesn't work for everyone. Please allow others to offer their advice without pushing your way. We all have knowledge. The more options new parents know about the easier it is for them to figure out what works for them and their baby.
