    I thought 5 hours was sleeping through. If they stir but self settle I wouldn't count it as waking

    I wouldn't count it if I needed to get up to them to feed/comfort. I would count it if they stirred but self settled.

    ETA in terms of length of time, I personally say they are sleeping through when I put them down for the night and don't need to get up to them until morning. My 8 mth old is still a long way off this!!

    Medical professionals say 5 hours I think but for me it means I can go to sleep and not be woken up!

    I thought it was 7 - 8 hours. DD1 started sleeping from 10pm til 5 or 6am when she was 6 weeks old and I counted this as sleeping through the night. But if she had woken at 3am for a feed, after 5 hours sleep I wouldn't have counted it as sleeping through the night.

    Drs day 5 hours without a feed or help resettling. That's what I was told.

    I've heard it means 5 hours but have never actually met anyone who would use this definition. To me it means at least 8 hours without me having to go in. Stirring and self-settling, crying out briefly, etc still counts as self-settling.

    The doctor who defined this must have been either male or had no children. On what planet is 5 hours sleeping through! I'd say 8+ hours.
