Why do parents expect their infants to sleep through the night?


Scrolling through facebook feed I see parents asking for advice on how to get their infants sleeping. Why do so many parents expect an infant to be sleeping through the night in a bed of their own before they've even been in the world for the same amount of time they were growing in the belly?

    I guess as a mom of 3 that didn't sleep through for quite a while I just ran with what I had. Getting any of them sleeping through was never even a thought before 1 year for me.

    Lol, my youngest is pushing 2 and still wakes up half the time atleast once a night. I think after a while reality sets in that it's really no longer about mom's sleep and just about keeping lil one happy and healthy!
