    I was pretty lucky to have my children sleeping through very early. I think consistently it was at about the 6-8 month mark. There are still nights where they might randomly wake up due to teething or not being well etc. but generally they get a full night's sleep most nights and they are now 2 & 3 years old.

    DS1 was 7 weeks old when he started sleeping through the night.

    DS2 is now 11 weeks old and (of course) still waking through the night.

    I was so extremely lucky with the first that I was hoping that DS2 would be the same but I guess you can't be that lucky all of the time.

    DS is 3 and still wakes during the night. The first night he ever slept through he was way past 1, I can't remember the exact age.

    DD slept through at 8 months but still wakes some nights.

    DS1 was around 20 months and DS2 was 3 months when he was consistently sleeping through (he did sleep through many nights before 3 months but not every night)

    DD is 3.5 and DS is 14 months. Neither sleep through. DD did for about 9 months when she was 2, but DS has never slept through.

    What is sleeping through the night?

    In my opinion, sleeping through the night means bub/child is put to bed at 7pm - 8.30pm and is not feed or tended to until, say 6.30am-7.30am.

    I've often heard the story of the 1mth old baby that "slept through as soon as we got home from hospital" only to find out years later that they "only woke for feeds"

    DS1 sleeps through the night (*crosses fingers & toes, spins twice and sings a verse of "moon river" so as not to cause the Sleep Gods to take this blessing away again*) ... I don't know if DS2 ever will!!!!

    My DS started around 8 months I think and stopped at 10 months when his ear problems got very bad. The ear problems continued until he was about 16 months. Then he started sleepig through again.

    The ear problems are back, however, and I'd say it's been a good 4 months since I've had a proper sleep through from him. He wakes a few times in the night and needs a resettle and then at 5am he wakes and can't be resettled so he's is in with DH until 6.30/7am (while am in with DD ).

    My DD is already sleeping 7pm to 7am with a 20 minute feed at 2am only. I suspect she'll sleep through the night before he does again.

    DS was still waking for a night bottle until he was about 12 months old. Once we dropped that bottle he slept through.

    Both of my girls slept through from about 4 months. They both dropped night feeds on their own. At worst, DD2 sometimes needs her dummy replace during the night but I don't actually need to do anything else to/for her.
