  • Paige just turned 5 months and sleeps through the night for the most part (which only means 4-6 hours of solid sleep for an infant). When she does wake its only to eat and shes back out .

  • He was sleeping thru the night at around 8 weeks until he turned 6 months and started teething. Then he started getting up a few times for months. He just started sleeping thru the night again at 13 months. Its been wonderful.

  • One was about 12 months, the other was about 6 months old when they stopped nursing during the night. They slept through the night from very early on. We co-slept and they nursed during the night but did not wake up.

  • Night weaned at 14 months (so no more waking to nurse), but at age 3 still wakes up at least once a night but usually goes back to sleep fairly quickly. It depends on the kid.

  • My first, not until 13 months old. And I had to push her to sleep through the night using the Pantley's method found in "The No Cry Sleep Solution."

    My second is 14 months old and still wakes up for one feeding a night, but goes right back to sleep. So, I'm not complaining at all. That's way more sleep than my first baby gave me.
