    dd slept 11-7 then 8-11 from 2 weeks (when we came home from hospital) but she also cluster fed from 7-1030 so i was attached to her for those hours.
    she woke a bit when we started solid, and with wonder weeks, but has consistantly slept 'well' with maybe a night feed 1-2 times a week (we officially night weaned at 18months when i fell pregnant again)

    My children were all breastfed.

    DD1 slept from 10pm - 6am from 6 weeks old.

    DD2 slept from 10pm through to 4 or 5am from 3 months, feed & change her and then sleep for another 2 hours.

    DD3 was a terrible sleeper and didn't sleep through until 12 months - even then it wasn't until she was about 18 months that she consistently started sleeping through the night. Didn't do anything different for her than we did for the older 2, it was just in her nature!

    Firstly, breast size has no effect on milk supply or storage, so don't worry about that.

    My 9 month old DD is exclusively BF (with real food 3-4x daily too) and breastfeeds 3 hourly day and night. Occasionally she will sleep a 4 hour stretch thru night. She's had periods of about a month at a time where she will sleep 6/7 hours a night but then gets a cold or tooth or something and goes back to 3 hourly. We demand feed though and although I'd love her to sleep through now, I don't believe in control crying so whenever sleeping through happens is fine.

    My DS was formula fed from 7m and didn't sleep through until 10 months.

    My first two slept 8 hr stretches, followed by another 3-4 hrs, before 12 weeks. My third was prob about 4-5 months when he started doing a long stretch, before that he'd do two 5-6 hr stretches from about 7pm. All their 'times' were different though, as the first would do her stretch from about 9-6, feed, then sleep til 9-10. Second was similar, third went to bed earlier and got up earlier. All fully breastfed.

    Im with BlissedOut that it's individual babies more than bf vs ff. And me and hubby are very good sleepers so it's in their genes haha!

    But like PP have said, mine tended to cluster feed in the few hours before bed which I think may help them sleep longer? Also I fed very long full feeds regularly during the day, like every 2-3 hrs as newborns, and woke them up to feed during the day if they'd been asleep for longer than that. I also didn't feed to sleep during the day, but did at night.

    I have not breastfed but expressed every feed for DS for 2 months. He would sleep from about 10pm to about 7:30 am at around 10 days old. THis continued when I changed him to formula.

    Thanks everyone - and wow Trishalicious how lucky are you 11-7?!
    I guess this seems an impossible feat to get bub sleeping a longer stretch even at the moment. Last night I fed at 9.30, 12.30, 2.30am, 4.30am and bub refused to sleep solidly after 4.30am and he is now fast asleep on my chest this varies greatly every night too. Have been considering supplementing but really dont want to.

    Mine slept through from birth and I never had bottles/formula in the house.

    Have to say though, not many of our daycare bubs are breastfed, yet most still wake through the night up until 3 when it starts to even out with those who sleep through and those who don't, but by 5 only some still night wake regularly.

    I BF and DD began sleeping through from about 6 weeks old. She sleeps from around 7pm to either 4 or 5am, wakes for a feed then back to sleep for another 2 hours. She went from waking two or three times to sleeping right through. So of course the first few nights i woke in pain, DD was still sleeping so i got up and expressed. After a week my body got used to her new routine and i slept through too without getting so engorged. Great now that i get lots of sleep at night but she feeds every 2 hours still during the day and only has catnaps. DD is now just over 3 months.

    Thanks for giving me hope lol! I was wondering if sleeping a longer stretch was possible as DS is feeding 2-3 hourly during the day still and catnapping during the night sometimes!
