when did your baby start sleeping through the night?

my dd is 9 weeks old...she has been in her crib, in her room for a week now and things are going great but she still wakes up once or twice to eat...which i realize is normal since she is still pretty how old were your kids when they slept for more than 4 or 5 hours at a time during the night?

  • My son was at least 2 1/2 before he slept through the night. My daughter had slept through the night since about 3 months but is now waking up every 2 hours to nurse (hoping its just a growth spurt) so she now sleeps by me and nurses all night so I can sleep!
