  • Safe? When your baby starts doing it. If your baby isn't doing it by 6 months, there are things you can do to start encouraging him to learn, but not before then.

  • my baby is six months and she sleeps from 9:00 p.m to 4:00 a.m. then wakes up at 8 or 9 in the morning!!! I love it. But she's always been a good sleeper :o] thank god. I've had my nights though!

  • Safe age? They're only going to do it when they're read to do it. My earliest was 6 weeks and my latest was 14 weeks (10 adjusted)

  • My son was sleeping through the night by 7wks...then he got sick and it threw him off...he got back on track a little before 3 months...he sleeps from around 9:30pm until about 5-6am, he eats a bottle, and goes right back to sleep until around 8am....IT'S GREAT! I love it!

    There is no "safe age", just when your baby does it...

  • Any age is safe. My daughter was about 4 weeks when she started sleeping through the night. She's a healthy happy 8 month old today.
