At six months I assume that you have started some solids for your son. So before you put him to sleep every night ensure that he something filling like sooji ki kheer of quiet thin consistency -- so that he has no problem in swallowing. In addition, keep the same routine for bedtime. If you want him to sleep around 8:30 then ensure that you follow the same routine every night. Babies love routine so once he knows that he has to sleep he will immediately try to sleep on his own. Create the sleep inducing atmosphere with curtains being drawn, lights switched off, No TV or mobile phone and you will see that your son is slowly falling into a pattern and has started sleeping in the night. However, don't expect the baby to sleep through the night right from the day one. Sleeping through the night comes with the age and when the babies start eating proper food like adults.
