Dd technically slept through the night (slept one 5 hr stretch) for a week at 9 months... then she went back to waking every 1-2 hrs. At 21 months she is now starting to sleep a 7-9 hr stretch every night. I am very thankful! ha ha. I did feel encourged when she was 9 months as she was mostly bf'ing still. Now she doesn't nurse as much, and although I felt full at first, I never felt overfull.
My first was up every 3 hours on the dot until after she turned 1. She's 5 now, and thank goodness, she sleeps through the night just fine, and has been for a few years. My 5 month old is EBF. She kinda set her own schedule. From about 3 months old until recently, she'd sleep for 4-5 hour stretches at a time, waking up once to feed, and going right back down for another 4-5 hours. Lately, she gets cranky if she's not in her pajamas, swaddled, and eating by 8:30 most nights. She's in her crib by 9, and usually she's not back up until 4 or 5. (Sometimes a little earlier, but still! Vastly different from my first.) I get up, nurse her, and we go back to sleep for a couple more hours. Sometimes she's in and out, sometimes she sleeps straight through. Weekdays, we're always up by 7 because my oldest has school. Weekends, we usually wake between 7 and 8.
Oh, and no, it doesn't seem to have effected my supply at all.
Hmmm. 12 years old and doeesn't sleep through the night. Though he night weaned before age two and compeltely weaned by 26 months.
48 years old myself, formula baby, STILL don't sleep all night. Probably never will. My son's just like me.
It's in our genes rather than anything else.
