Questions like "Hot mama? Practical mom? Domestic diva? What’s your mommy style?" might be a deterrent. Maybe at least allowing for the possibility of male membership would encourage more dads to…Continue

Our 3mo daughter now sleeps about 9-10 hours a night, not including the one time per night she wakes up for feeding. She started sleeping most of the way through the night at about 7 weeks and we put her in her crib in her own room (instead of in a Pack N Play in our room) at about 8-9 weeks. Fortunately the transition was a breeze. We had the usual "is she still breathing?!" panic the first night and then one time after a few days when she slept 9 hours straight. I am thinking that is common for most new parents. I had heard that 2 months is a good point to try to move the baby into their own room/crib and that seemed to work for us.

We established a routine of getting her ready for bed (PJs/sleep sack) and then a light feeding and she falls asleep. My wife then puts her in her crib.

I get the feeling that we are indeed pretty lucky that she sleeps so well. My parents said I was never that easy of a baby (my sister was)!

My daughter began sleeping through the night almost immediately. Don't think we don't know how lucky we are. Anyway, Austin, you should probably try convincing your wife to start transitioning your daughter to her crib, or else she'll be six and won't know what her room looks like. The longer you wait, the harder it'll be. We had some trouble at first, but now she can't fall asleep UNLESS she's in her own crib: when she cuddles with us in bed, she sees it as playtime.
