    My first was 14 months, my second was 9 months, and my 3rd is currently 13 months and still wakes almost hourly every night. He has "slept" (not through, but slept for a decent amount of the night) twice.

    He sleeps in a queen size bed in his own room, because a cot just didn't work for him at all, he wouldn't even contemplate sleeping in it. Most nights I put him down in his bed at around 7:30, and will usually join him in there from about midnight onwards. It's the only way I get any sleep.

    I always laugh out loud when I see this question..

    A good 2.5yrs, for each of mine.

    Night waking (at least in the first year or so) is an inbuilt survival mechanism. And totally beyond normal. The often seen drive to 'make' a new born sleep through is disturbing.

    I don't think it's seen as being ideal, I cop an absolute hammering from most people for cosleeping

    Really? I wasn't so much talking about in real life as more on BH. I see it often. And that's fine for those for whom it works. It's just that it doesn't work for everyone.

    It most definitley depends on what sort of social circle you travel in as to how cosleeping is perceived. The majority of mum's that I socialise with see cosleeping as a fantastic choice/option (maybe woudln't go as far as to say ideal), whereas the general public seem to see it as weird.

    I get a range of reactions when I tell people I still co-sleep with my 13 month old, anywhere from "that's awesome" to "you do what you have to" to "that's ridiculous" to "he'll never learn to sleep if you keep doing that".

    Yeah I mainly get the "you're going to create a problem sleeper" or the SIDS talk from my group of friends, but it's more the norm in my BW group and thankfully my SIL too now so I have a family member on side now haha.

    I asked whether it was assisted or spontaneous because, believe it or not, some babies do sleep through on their own accord... it IS normal. Like with lots of child related things, there are varying degrees of normal.

    Is it really necessary to come in here and tell people that you think they're disturbing? If you can't keep a simple thread positive, shoo!

    Maybe "ideal" wasn't the right term (some comments were fresh in my mind I guess).

    I know so many people who co-sleep it's not funny. But they generally keep it to themselves.

    Anywho it was just a thought crossing my mind and probably not really on topic, so as you were.

    I wasn't talking about the kids that sleep through naturally @redlipsandpearls, on their own, its the threads I see sometimes that ask -
    "How/when can I get my baby to sleep through?" That and the obsession to control sleep/naps/feeds..

    DS1 was 6 weeks (8:00pm-8:30am) & DS2 was almost 10 weeks (7:30-7:30). (Both slept really long stretches from birth-I had to wake them in hospital for feeds) DS2 is now almost 16 months & I've only ever woken up twice while he was sick to tend to him.

    It was definitely spontaneous for both boys.. I remember waking in the morning & nearly having a heart attack wondering why they hadn't woken (you'd think I'd learn after the first time). DH sleeps like a log the second his head hits the pillow... Maybe they just take after him??

    I always joke that if I ever had a third they probably wouldn't sleep through until teenagers!! 😁
