My son is 5 months 3 weeks and still gets up every 3 hours to sleep.
I'm exhausted!!! When did your breastfed baby sleep through the night?

My 3 kids were around 3 y. That's normal. There is one mom on cm whose child was over 4.
Human babies are supposed to wake at night to make sure they are with their mother and safe. That's how the human race has survived, evolution. Human babies' brains are hardwired to wake at night and scream if they aren't next to mom.

I didn't add that I haven't slept through the night in over 30 years. By the time my last baby was sleeping through the night I was well in my 30s and my bladder can't make it through the night. I have to get up to pee. I also only sleep about 6 hours now that I am in my 50s and can sleep as much as I want.
When my oldest son was around 12 mo I decided I was going to stop thinking about sleeping through the night. Good thing I gave up on it since it hasn't happened.
