The three words that every parent of a newborn hates to hear. "It gets better." My answer, as it always has been is; when?
I know it isn't a surprise, we have an older child, but you forget how long it takes. Here is the answer; every child is different (four more words that are harder to hear). In our case the magic number was 7 weeks for our son. He started to sleep from 10pm to 3-4am, which was a marked improvement from the every hour feedings. He is predictable and everyone is much happier.
It does get better.
