When did your baby start sleeping through the night??

My DD started sleeping 11-5 at 7 weeks. My DS is 6 weeks, he'll be 7 weeks this Sunday 2/27. I am hoping he drops one of his middle of the night feedings. Just wondering when your kids started sleeping through the night..or for longer periods?

  • You mean with no waking? Or without bothering you when he wakes? Because mine doesn't sleep all night without waking, and he's eleven years old. (I'm 47 and do the same. So does my 51 year old husband.)

    Going back to sleep on his own came between somewhere around the second birthday.

  • Through the night being defined as 6 hours my DS was 6 weeks and DD was more like 9 weeks. 8-10 hours didn't come for either until several months old.
