  • yep.

    all three started sleeping all night around 6weeks and then had periods of time when they'd get up (growth spurts) but yeah my girls slept through the night on breastmilk.

  • Yes. My second bf babe slept through the night from birth, but we coslept so she could nurse whenever she liked and only woke for diaper changes. Growth spurts would interfere with this but then she would revert to sleeping more.

  • My older child didn't sleep through the night until six months or so. My four-month old was sleeping 4-6 hour stretches at two months old, and is now up to 8 hours.

  • All 3 of my boys were sleeping though the night (from 10pm to 5 am) by 6 weeks and the older two were doing it by 3 weeks, and by 3 months they were sleeping 10 hours or can do it!

  • I would say my son started sleeping "through the night," at 6 weeks. He started sleeping, most nights, from around 8:00 p.m. until 4:30 a.m. He pretty much does the same thing now and he is 6 1/2 months.

  • He would sleep for 4-5 hour stretches when he was about two months old. He just turned one and has maybe slept from 9 pm until morning a half dozen times. But many nights, he'll wake up to eat at 10 or 11 and then sleep until 6 am.
