When did your babies sleep through..... I'm talking say between 12am-6am?
I can't remember how many weeks C was but it was fairly early...maybe 10-12 weeks then after a month or so he broke and began waking for his dummy to be put back in.

Isla was 6.5 months. Up until then she would wake at least once a night at around 3am but quite often twice
12/07/2013 at 14:16
Was she waking for food or comfort?

Can't really remember with C.
J was 5 weeks. He'd go 7 - 7

I would say its only in the last few months that he's reliably slept through and I don't expect to be woken, he's 4 in 5 weeks. He's had periods where his sleep has been ok and sleep has been bad.

food I would say. I was breast feeding still and she'd settle as soon as she'd had a 10-15 minute feed. She always has been a milk monster and still has milk at bedtime and in the morning at 20 months!
At 6.5 months one night she just slept through, we changed nothing, still had same routine and she's been doing 6.45pm -6/6.30am ever since.

C (BFed baby) started sleeping through those sort of hours at about 10/11 weeks, and gradually increased it so he was going 8pm-7am from about 6 months which is what he's done pretty much since then most of the time.
I remember the first time he slept through I woke up with rock hard boobs desperate to feed!

My son has slept through 7-7 from about 11 weeks.
12/07/2013 at 15:14
She sleeps thru probably 4 nights out of 7 at the moment. She will be 2 on Sunday!
12/07/2013 at 16:23
Little h has slept from 7 until at least 4 for the last two nights.. He is 6 weeks next tuesday... Maybe a one off tho!
12/07/2013 at 16:29
A slept through occasionally from 2 weeks..! But regularly from 10-5am then down again until 8-something from about u/8 weeks maybe? The last 2 weeks have gone completely out of the window though, but don't know if that's cos the heat or some other unknown reason!

Isaac was doing 8-7 at 8 weeks, was getting up
Once in the night before that
Lucas sleep drastically improved by 11 months....but it was about 3-3.5 years before we didnt have any night waking a

G was doing 10-6 from 6 weeks. P is 11 weeks and will do a 6 hour sleep from 9-3 but i dont see that as sleeping through as i am up feeding in the night. If she did another couple of hours and did 9-5 i would see that as sleeping through x

8mo. Until then he woke for milk.
12/07/2013 at 18:55
Jacob has started sleeping through around 3 nights out of 4 in the last 3 months or so - probably not the answer you want to hear!
12/07/2013 at 19:08
10 months, was still waking at least once for food (bf) before then.
12/07/2013 at 19:14
#2 about 18 mths
#3 she's done 10-5 a few times now. She reliably goes down about 9.30/10 then stirs for a feed anytime between 2 and 5. I always try the dummy first as sometimes that's ll she's after. She's 8 weeks today

C from 6 weeks and has continued to be a fab sleeper. Was quite smug about this and thought it was down to our strict bedtime routine etc.
Did exactly the same with S and she still often wakes for milk between 3 and 4 am! Argh. Have tried holding her off, but she won't give in until she downs a bottle and then goes straight back to sleep (unfortunately I can't!). The last few weeks, we have had a few nights where she's done nearly 7 to 7, so I'm hopeful the end may be in sight!

We have had 2 5 hour stints so far at 15 weeks...usually its still 2-3 wakings although not always for milk but I think he wakes and doesn't know how to go back to sleep. He's exclusively bf too.

7.5m he started going 7-7, before that he was waking for a feed around 1am and about 6am for the day. Once he started taking less milk in the day I dropped the night feed, he woke a few nights at the same time out of habit, but then slept through I also made it a rule to not get him before 7am, so as long as he wasn't upset I'd leave him. He now does 7:15/30pm-8am.
