    My little girl is breastfed and she occasionally sleeps through at 11 months. She started at 7 months then got ill and it all went to cr.ap lol just getting back into the swing of things!

    Yes, she will! I promise Every baby is different though. DS1 slept through once I weaned him at 15 months, DS2 shocked me by sleeping through from 12 weeks. Both breastfed, no formula.


    Me, he and our two boys

    Your a fantastic mum if your children are happy and healthy

    As a child it was mostly just my mum, my sister and I. I don't know how she done it by herself... The hardest time I remember was having toast for dinner every night for a week over Christmas because she didn't have enough money but the fact we had our mum around was the most important thing. She cried because she couldn't buy us Christmas presents.. We weren't worried, we just wanted to be with our mum.

    Children are amazing and I bet your children love you no matter what

    DD, my night sleeper, before 6 months would sleep 6pm-6/7am, then 3 naps @15-20 min each approx 9am, midday and 3pm. At 6 months she dropped to 2 naps and they became about 30 min long. At 12m when she dropped to 1 nap it finally became longer than an hour. tHEN I didn't know what to do with myself, great night sleep PLUS a couple of hours nap time a day.

    She was demand fed with formula top ups (low supply) until 8 months when I switched to formula. There was about 3 weeks when I could EBF, she was already sleeping through and her sleep stayed the same without any formula. She did feed every 2 hours through the day plus a big cluster feed session before bed until about 6 months.

    I should add, both my kids night sleep goes to hell with needles/illness. It usually takes 3-7 days to get back where we were once they are all better.

    How old is your bub?

    Both my boys are/were breastfed.

    DS1 slept through 7am-7pm with a 10pm dreamfeed from about 3 months.

    DS2 started sleeping through just after 5 months (when we started solids.... wouldn't take a dreamfeed otherwise I think he would have slept through earlier). Occasionally he will wake if he does a poo.

    Both ds1 and ds2 sleep ok during the day (eg at 5 months 2 hours in morning, 2 hours in arvo and a late arvo 30 minute nap).

    IMO breastfeed v formula feed isn't a defining factor when it comes to sleeping through. Key influences are:
    - temperature (many people under dress bub resulting in wakenings around 5am the coldest part of the day)
    - hunger (dreamfeeds help with younger bubs......solids, in particular protein help when bub is old enough)
    - habit (bubs doesn't always need feeding when he wakes. Sometimes bub just needs a hand resettling. If bub is continually fed at every waking then bub will start to wake from habit).
    - negative sleep aids. In particular in older bubs dummies/patting and rocking to sleep etc cause negative sleep associations which can increase the likelihood of night wakenings.

    5 out of my 6 didnt sleep through until they were 2 yrs. There was nothing wrong that is just when they were ready. All the older kids are great sleepers now. My 2 yr old still wakes every night but resettled with 2 mins.

    My 22 month old has been formula fed since 5 months (mixed fed previously) and didn't sleep through until 18 months and still occasionally wakes at night. It will pass!

    My baby is almost 2 months old.

    Thank you so much for the tips!! I always get up and feed her during the night but last night I just resettled her and I got an extra couple of hours!! I also folded the blanket over so she was warmer.

    Thanks again
