What did I do to make him sleep through?
Nothing really. I thought the day will never come too. Marc is just more difficult than Da.
With Da, she slept through on her own and I didn't had to manipulate her sleeping habit or feeding time.
However, I guess letting them sleep alone helps. When we are not disturbed by the baby, we don't jump up the moment they cry. Babies make alot of noise when they sleep.
I didn't let him cry because the whole condominium would have woken up. I slept with him on the last few nights before he slept through. I kept giving him the pacifier and teach him how to go back to sleep. That's how I moved the 2 feeds at 1am and 4am to 11pm and 6am.
With 2 children sleeping through, many asked me how I did it. Maybe I've done something right, maybe I am just lucky.
With Marc, I did try a few things and also manipulated his feeds though it was only in a matter of 1 week. First, I dream feed him at 11pm so that I can move his 1am feed to 3am. When I successfully moved it to 3am, I will give him the pacifier which will help him to go back to his sleep till 5am-6am. Once Marc did it the first night, he realised he likes sleeping more than waking up for feeds and didn't wake up anymore unless the mosquitoes are buzzing around!
