    14 months. Basically as soon as he started childcare. Totally spontaneously too. It's still the exception rather than the rule (but only just!)

    DS1 was around 2.5-3yrs old but he sleep walks most nights still.

    DS2 - is 4 in 9 days. Still wakes most nights, usually ends up in our bed. We've tried every gentle method imaginable (I dont want to use any form of CC or CIO for my children) he also has special needs though which doesnt help.

    DS3 started sleeping through at around about 3 months. We didnt do anything to encourage it he just naturally was rwady for bed at 5:30pm and slept til around 6:30am. We moved him out of our bed and into his cot at 4 months and apart from when he's been sick he's basically slept through since. He's 1 now and its very rare he ever wakes up.

    DD 8hrs at 8 weeks stretching to 12-13 hrs by 12 weeks. The first 8 weeks she was a screaming collicky hell-baby who barely slept night or day. Once she started sleeping through she was having 3 x 15-20 min naps a day, demand fed (BM with top ups due to supply issues) and no routine. She never regressed and would only ever wake at night if something was really wrong.

    DS was mixed-fed on demand and finally started managing 7 hours or so at around 9 months, 12 hours some nights by about 11 months, other nights going 7pm-4am, feed then back down til 7am. He's 13 months and cutting molars (plus has a cold this week) so is back to waking 1-2 times a night (either 1am or 4.30am). I've tried a lot with him after 6 months, he changed from mixed feeding to formula at 10 months, no difference. Spacing out feeds, no difference. Introducing solids, no difference. CIO, no difference. Started self settling to bed, no diference. Rotuine/no routine, no difference. He was a very easy newborn though, naps well and is a happy little man, so I know he'll get there eventually!

    That would be us most definitely. I wouldn't even pretend to believe that we'd get a sleeper if we had a 4th. I can now at least say that we got through and survived 7 years of sleep deprivation. I can function on far less sleep than I ever used to, so there's one positive out of it! I am hoping that their lack of desire to sleep means they won't be teenagers who are still lying in bed at lunchtime, because I can not stand that (they definitely get their early starts from me!)

    To me, they may stir, even cry out a little (non-distressed) and go back to sleep. Basically not needing you to get up to them at all.

    I consider sleeping through to be 12 hours.

    DD1 - slept through at 4 months. I did nothing, she would've been sleeping for long periods before that. She slept through before even starting solids.

    DS - 18 months. He was only waking once a night from about 3 months at about 10/11pm but 18 months, I knew he didn't need it so I went in and put his dummy in instead of feeding and it only took him about 3 times going in and only 1 night and he got the message.

    DD2 - was sleeping through from less than a week old. As a newborn, she always did at least an 8 hour stretch, often 11/12 hours. She went through 4 month sleep regression for about 6 weeks. But I just rode it out. Apart from a few rough patches that coincided with a wonder week, she's always been a good sleeper.

    DS & DD2 were both bf.

    We're the same. We cope incredibly well on very little sleep. My only regret is we get less time to spend with the older kids in the evenings as I'm often tied to a chair breastfeeding. She's nearly 11 months now and things are slowly improving ....

    DS first slept through the night at about 4months old for one night only. From then I can count on one hand how many times he slept through.

    He started sleeping through consistantly at 3 when we had his tonsils and adnoids removed. He wakes occasionally if he's sick/cold/wet the bed/lost his ted but nothing that a quick resettle wont fix. I thought it would NEVER happen.

    Yeah, it's hard. I found that hard with my third, the eternal mother guilt that he was taking so much of my time away from the two...but they don't care and love their little brother, it was just my feelings on it.
