Have you ever had a longstanding (6+ months) "all-night waker" (every 1-3 hours) turn into an "all-night sleeper" within a few days?

And at what age? (I'm desperate for some encouragement that my 7 month old will start sleeping through the night...or at least 4 consecutive hours. I'm exhausted. And I think that she is too)

(currently waking about every 40 minutes) he's 8 1/2 months old. has never slept for more than 5 hours straight. that only happened one time. i'm no help to you. but i do know how you feel. i'm still waiting for that day. hope yours comes soon. good luck to you.

  • Mine started sleeping through the night at 8 weeks. She eats at about 9:30 or 10:00 at night, goes to sleep around 10:30 or 11 and wakes up at 6 in the morning. What does he eat? When does he eat?

  • well my both my sons started sleeping through the night by 3 mons but my sisters son is 3 years old and still gets up about every 4 hours so every kid is different the only thing I can say is maybe talk to yuo PED about it and maybe they can help give you some ideas on what to do
