Every baby is different. Also, it may not be a realistic expectation that she sleeps through the night. Babies have shorter sleep cycles than adults. Also, their sleep cycles often change...especially if they are coming up on a growth spurt or development milestone.
Welton 2010--Direct quotes from the American Academy of Pediatrics Policy Statement:
I followed the BabyWise w/my 1st son & he is now 4. For 3 years we've been fighting his poor eating habits. Turns out, feeding on a schedule, instead of demand, messes up the child's ability to recognize their own hunger. He doesn't know when he's hungry & will forever pay the price of me wanting to be on a schedule. Yes, BabyWise helps you get a schedule, but I just don't recommend it. I've felt guilty about doing parent-directed approach to feeding for 3 years. Please think about that before you start using BabyWise program... Sorry to be a downer, but this is my biggest regret in life to date! No way I'm doing that program w/baby #2.
