  • my son was sleeping from 11 to 6 at 4 weeks, as soon as we switched him to his crib.
    he went through a phase that lasted about a month or two where hed wake up 2-3 times a night just for his binky around 6 months. And he's been a 9-9 sleeper for a while now.

  • Technically nobody sleeps throught the night. Even as adults we wake up multiples time in our sleep cycle. A baby who wakes up and cries for mom needs mom. A baby who can "STTN" doesn't need mom or has learned that they will be ignored if they cry. It's not normal for children to "STTN" until they are at least 1 yr old. I didn't do CIO with my DD and she started STTN when she was 1.5 years old.

  • My oldest two were sleeping through the night by 6 months (12 hours a night). My middle daughter was 5 weeks old and sleeping 8 hours a night which was awesome because I had 2 toddlers to deal with and needed sleep. I never ignored her at night or "cried it out" when she was that age but she still decided she wanted to sleep for 8 hours straight.
    My youngest daughter started sleeping through the night at 3 months (for 10 hours).
    They are older now and the only one I have issues with is my youngest. She's almost 3 and likes to wake up every other night wanting something. She drives us nuts but we just put her back to bed.
    My other kids have never had a problem staying asleep.

  • My 1st baby, at 2 months
    2nd baby, 4 months
    3rd baby, 5 months
    The only reason they woke was to nurse, then right back to sleep... They were all easy babies.. I would do it all over again if I could, not start over though, I mean go back in time,lol
