Some babies just seem ready and able to sleep through the night from a few weeks after birth; most babies take a little longer. Some babies learn to sleep peacefully and never look back, while for others each new developmental stage acts as a trigger for another bout of sleep disruption.Possible reasons
Your baby may wake because of internal changes: breathing pauses, hunger, light sleep.
He may find separations hard to bear. He may want to be close to you day and night.
He may delay bedtime and wake you from habit. Maybe he doesn’t know how to go to sleep on his own.
