we did something similar to baby wise. worked great for our family. caleb slept thru the night at a week or two old. 8 hours. taite it took longer, he was like 3 months or so before he did and even then it wasnt consitant. id say he was 5 mo. before he slept 12 hours thru the night. Since then thats the norm for him. hes 15 mo. now. sleeps 12 hours every night. without waking up

Had I not read your post above I'd really hate you for being so perfect. ;-)

We're going to try babywise this time around. Stephen was 20 months old before he slept all night and Christian was 15 months old. I'm not going that route again!
