    I tried the dreamfeed but it seemed like our little one was waking up more with it (twice a night). We dropped it at around 2.5 months and she was waking up once during the night (aroud 3). Then around 3 months she slept through the night 11 hours and has been since with the exception of a handful of nights where she has woken up. When she does wake up she is not interested in eating but only needs a little hug and is right back to sleep. She is now 3.5 months.

    I didn't ever see this poll… weird. The dream feed DEFINITELY helped us STTN. In fact, I was never able to drop it at the time BW says to drop it. I had to wait until we started solids to drop it; every time we tried a night without it, he'd consistently wake up at 5:30am hungry. And I loved that extra hour to 1.5 hours of sleep I would get if we did it, so we just went with what worked for us.

    I do think the df helped her sleep through the night. She was 4 weeks old when she started to sstn. We took it away at 8 weeks and she was fine. There was about a week of random night wakings, but then she figured it out.
