    Default Define 'sleeps through'

    If once I go to bed bub doesn't wake for a feed until after 7am then I will say they 'slept through'.

    *My* definition of sleeping through is not a peep from 7am until 6-7am. DD has slept through since I stopped feeding her to sleep and night weaned her at 12 months, so for the last 3 months she has consistently gone to bed at 7pm and gets up at approximately 6:30am (can vary, sometimes it's 5:30am, sometimes 7am but 6:30 is the average). The ONLY thing that affects that is illness, otherwise I don't hear from her all night.

    Yeah I say my 5 month old ds sleeps through. 10pm - 8am. I think 8+ hours is sleeping through.
    Sometimes he might wake once for his dummy, but never wakes hungry for a feed.

    I considered DS sleeping through when he was going 7-4. Yes 4am was a stupid time to start our morning but that's when he woke for the day and he wasn't waking for a feed or comfort overnight.

    I would generally define it as not waking for a feed or comfort from the time mum/dad go to bed to when baby/toddler wakes for the day and wants to get up (at least 4am though).

    For me, it meant I could sleep a reasonable amount of hours and not be woken.

    This mean I would go to bed at 11 or 12, and get up around 8-ish. I was quite happy with this. If I thought it was "baby sleeps from 7 to 7" or whatever... then she's still not sleeping through. I've never put her to bed at 7.

    To me it means I'm not woken for a feed at any time while I'm asleep.

    Something that I'm hoping will happen tonight!

    For me it's anything over 8 hours, ideally 12 hours (7-7).

    The book that really helped me is called 12 Hours Sleep By 12 Weeks Old (got it on Amazon). DD slept 7pm-7am at 11 weeks.

    A whole night of unbroken sleep for both of us, so say 6:30-6, suits me just fine!!!!

    to me it's when I don't have a disturbed sleep. dd normally falls asleep 10:30 or 11 depending on when she wakes up that day and how long her naps were throughout the day.
    I was getting solid sleep until she just recently turned 6 months. back to waking up multiple times a night. but she's not feeding, just wants a hug.

    the first night dd slept longer than 3 hours as a newbie, Dh and I jumped out of bed pretty much at the same time to make sure she was still breathing!

    Same as others here - my definition is no wake-ups for feeds, so once down for the night that's it until 6-7am.

    But I the technical definition is 5hrs
