    I learnt this the hard way....everyone has very different definitions.

    Mine personally is if they sleep 8+ hours in one stretch without my intervention.

    That includes me going in and settling or feeding. I don't consider that sleeping through.
    If they stir but self settle then I'd count that as sleeping through.

    By this definition, my DS did not sleep through until he was 10 1/2 months.

    A friend of mine considers it sleeping through if you only need to go in and feed them and they settle straight back to sleep! By that definition he slept through from 13 weeks....

    The flaw there is that by the time he was 8 months old he was waking every couple of hours through the night. I was feeding him back to sleep each time. Trust me that is definitely NOT sleeping through! 😱

    I'd say 8+ hours sleeping without waking for a feed.

    For me, Sleeping through the night means sleeping from 7pm-7am. Of couse they will wake briefly and stir (dont you?) but they go back to sleep without any assistance or fuss.

    When a dr says sleeping through the night is 5 hours it is because in terms of the number of sleep cycles 5 hours sleep for them is equivalent to the same as our full nights sleep (I think that was deemed as 8 hours).

    I think most parents don't see it this way though. However from someone who is currently lucky to get 3 hours sleep in one block, I would LOVE to get 5 hours of unbroken sleep.
