  • about three months. We use to give her a lavender baby wash bath before bed and also a formula with small portion of gerber cereal rice for baby in her bottle which made her belly full so she would sleep longer thru night.

  • I would agree with 3 months. I used the powder formula for my kids and I kept bottles of measured water and poured the formula in it and fed them with the lights off so that they would go back to sleep quickly then eventually they would sleep longer and longer until they lasted through the night. I also did the lavender baby wash too. it really works.

  • It really varies a lot. Some easy-going babies sleep through the night almost from the start. Some (like mine) are more intense and don't sleep through the night until 6 months or so.

    It also depends on what you mean by sleeps through the night...
    The official definition is 5 hours in a row
    Then there's from mommy's bedtime to morning
    And last is baby's bedtime to morning

  • Depends on baby , depends on what you're feeding ( formula or breast milk) . By 6 months you can uually expect 6 - 7 hours in a row. at 6 months you can also start rice cereal to help keep her full. Try uping the amount of her pe-bed feeding a bit.

  • yeah this is normal for a 2 mth old, normally around 3 to 1/2 months they start sleeping through but all babies are different

  • I think never. just because my sister didnt sleep the whole night until she was 7 or 8 years old.
