    @Mike86 The MOST mportant thing for you to do is make sure he falls asleep by himself at the beginning of the night. When he can do that, it will become FAR easier for him to fall back to sleep when he wakes up during the night.

    If he needs something when he wakes up to get himself back to sleep that he cant get for himself (eg, breast, bottle, someones arms), its really frustrating for him to need something he cant get. That is usually why we hear from babies at that 3 hour mark.
