  • as a baby? a few months old. I was nursing and we ended up co-sleeping, so it was a welcome relief!

  • All 5 of mine were consistently sleeping at least 8 hours/night by 2 months. But yes, I freaked out each time one of them did it! I would wake up and realize they hadn't cried out all night and would run in their room to check on them.

  • 2-3 months old. I was breastfeeding. And yes, I freaked out when I woke up!

  • From time to time, right from birth --usually because they'd managed to create enough milk for their growth spurt and conked out in order to wake up half an inch taller.

    Otherwise... regularly sleeping through the night started somewhere between 3 and 4 (years old).

  • my first slept through the night at 5 months old only one time. But she didn't start actually doing it until 18 months. I didn't freak out I was releaved she was finally sleeping through the night lol. My second was sleeping through the night by 3 months I didn't freak out, but I did go to check on her because the fact she didn't wake me up.

  • all 3 of my babies started to sleep through the night by 2 months. yes once in awhile they had their days to wake up in the middle of the night for a bottle but for the most part they would be in bed by 8 or 9 & wouldnt wake up til 6 or 7 the next morning. it was relief for me in the morning.
