A baby that sleeps through the night might be near the top of any expectant parent's wish list.
But should babies really be sleeping all night long?
Research by Swansea University suggests the answer is "no".
To coincide with Safer Sleep Week, Swansea University have released a video to help new parents find out about baby sleep and feeding patterns.
The video challenges the idea that babies should be sleeping all through the night and seeks to disprove 'the myth' that babies will sleep longer at night if they are given more solid food.

More than 700 mothers were involved in the study and the research found 78% of babies between the ages of 6 and 12 months will wake at least once a night.
