My DS never slept through the night until he weaned at 14.5 months.
Dd is 3.5 yrs old and still wakes up 2-3 times a night
Sleeping through the night? What's that mean?!
She absolutely will sleep through one day. It might be in couple of weeks, months or years but it absolutely will happen.
Thank you so much to everyone for your responses, I thought it was just me!! But I seem to be like everyone else yay! I'm human!!!
My dd started doing 6 hours in a row at 2 months op.
By 3 months she did 8-10 hours in a row
As you said, every kid is different. Some kids need sleep training, others do it naturally.
There will come a time you have had enough and you shouldn't have to put up with a waking child.
You can sleep train before 12 months if you want, there are gentle methods such as Elizabeth Pantleys No Cry sleep solution or quicker, less gentle methods such as Controlled crying or something in between such as Tizzie Halls methods in Save our Sleep.
There's no reason why you have to suffer through night waking after a year. Some people have the patience to do so or just survive on less sleep, but if night waking becomes an issue for you, don't be afraid to make changes and sleep train.
How did you go last night OP?
Things have improved!! I put DD down anywhere between 6:30 and 7:30. She does fuss a bit so she doesn't really settle properly for another hour or so but then usually sleeps through until 2/3am then through again until 5:30/6.
I did have a promising night a few weeks ago. I went out and DH put DD to bed. When he got home, he assured me that I would be needed soon and not to worry about expressing. I made it until 4:30am and I had to express. DD slept from 8pm to 6:15am!!
So no pulling the wool over my eyes now I know she can do it lol
