Consistently would have been around 6mo.
First starting to sleep through at 4mo
Depending on the definition of 'sleeping through' - all 3 babies were 10-12 continuous hours by 3 months. Sorry to say! I seem to breed good sleepers. We have other challenges though
My definition of sleeping through is 10 hours plus
9.5 hours at 8 weeks (no training involved, he just did it - was doing 6 hour stretches at 2 weeks - asked MCHN if I should be waking him to feed and she said no because he was a great size and gaining). Due to have #2 in a few weeks and don't dare to hope he'll be the same.
That said day sleeps have been harder and he will not sleep in the car or pram EVER. And 4:30/ 5am wake ups are the norm. Now does 10.5 or 11 hours overnight, have never gotten 12.
DS: 3 months
DD: 2 years
No sleep training here.
DD was 10 months when she first did it for 3-4 night stretches with a few relapses, and 12 months consistently.
DS1 was pretty consistent at sleeping all night from about 7 months of age. Of course we had the occasional wakes in the night due to teething, illness etc.
DS2 was my terrible sleeper. He did not sleep a full night until a few weeks after his 1st birthday (and only after we spent a week at sleep school). Before this he was feeding on and off all night and waking every few hours. The longest stretch he did was 4 hours. Total nightmare. He's almost 2 and I still feel like I'm trying to catch up on my sleep after the year of sleep deprivation.
DS1 was 11 months when he started doing 10.30-6.30, 15 months and fully weaned when he did 12 hours overnight.
DS2 was a freak child who went from waking every hour to doing 12 hours at 12 weeks.
DS started sleeping through the night at around 6 months. But was still waking at the sparrows fart around 5-530am everyday. He only just started sleeping later till 6-630am just recently at 11 months. I'm putting it down to learning to roll over in his sleep and get comfy enough to doze back off. I also had to adjust his routine so that bedtime would be a little later too.
