When did baby sleep for 6 or more hours in a row?

My 4 mos. old is still up every 3 hrs. to feed (more if she's sick like last night). I know her sleeping through the night could still be a long way off. When will it happen? Ugh, I'm so tired. I work full-time and some nights I feel like I'm up all night and then have to turn around and go to work.

  • My son started to around 8 or 9 months old. He would only sleep for four hours at night. I was so excited the first night of full sleep. I forgot how good it felt :).

  • Like 2 months but it wasn't ever MORE than 6 hours at that point. He started sleeping 8+ hours around 7-8 months.

  • my dd has been since about 4 and half months. she was into the routine of sleeping from 6 am to 11 pm.......and there was nothing i could do to keep her up....she would wanna be awake from 11 pm - 6 am.....straight!! it was horrible. then, i was talking to my dh, saying how nice it would be for her to sleep the other way......and what do you know....the next night she went to sleep for what i thought may have been a quick nap at 10 pm.....and slept until 9 the next morning. And has been since that night. aside from the occ. teething pain.
