  • My oldest (11 years old) began sleeping thru the night at about 4 1/2 years old
    My youngest (18 months) began sleeping thru the night at 5 weeks old. He slept from 10 pm to 5:30 am. Since I get up at 5, that worked for me!

  • woah...4 1/2 years old?! that's insane.

    my oldest (2 years) was breastfed and because she woke up to eat during the night, she didn't start sleeping through the night until like 6-8 months.
    my youngest (3 months) just started sleeping through the night like last week...thank god!

  • He was 6 years old..
    It took me a few years to get him to understand that he didn't need to wake me up to tell me that he woke up to get a drink of water or to pee... sigh...
    Age 6 was a good year.. a very good year!!! :)

  • My son was probably around 2, but that was only on some nights. He is 4 now and still gets up in the middle of the night a couple times a week. He has never been much of a sleeper...

  • All 5 of mine slept through the night (at least 8 hours) by 2 months.

  • 2 years, 6 weeks, and my 10 month old does not, although I kind of think he did for a while. So much for me thinking I had it all figured out with my 2nd, babies are just all different.

  • They ranged from 8 weeks to 6 months. Obviously it wasn't always 100%. There's always the occasional bad dream or not feeling well. But luckily, they are all pretty good sleepers now. My 5 yr old even put himself down for a nap this afternoon, so I took one too!

  • My first: 2 years for all night in our bed and 4 years for all night in his own (and 4.5 for all night in his own on a regular basis).

    My second: 3 weeks going 6 hours overnight and he did that for about a year... until molars started coming in and he was up every couple of hours. We're almost done with canines now at 20 months and he's close to sleeping all night again.

  • He's 2 now, and sleeps through the night (for the most part, anyway) until about 6AM, when he comes to our bed. I'd say it happened somewhere around 21 months (guestimating).
