    @Rossa what do you mean you when you are asking if your child is sleeping through? It means different things to some mothers.

    To me my baby sleeps through because she sleeps 9-10.5 hours straight before she wakes for quick feed back to sleep. Therefore I know she resettles herself because she goes for such a long stretch of time. So she is sleeping through but still waking every night IUKWIM?

    Are you referring to 11-12 hours straight? Or if they wake but put themselves back to sleep?

    Hi Daptoamy,

    Thanks for your question. You are right parents do have different perceptions about what sleeping through the night means. We could have been more specific about that question.

    For the purposes of this study "sleeping through the night" refers to whatever normal stretch of time your child sleeps from bedtime through to getting up in the morning, without any need for parental intervention during that entire stretch of time. So if your child normally sleep 11 hours but wakes after 9 hours and wants a feed, then that would not be considered sleeping through the night. If a child is wakes and requests parental intervention in anyway to return back to sleep then that constitutes not sleeping through the night. Children that wake during the night period (e.g. 11 hours between bedtime and getting up in the morning) but settle themselves and do not normally request any parental assistance would be considered sleeping though.

    The questionnaire also asks about your perceptions of your child's night time waking, because we understand that for many parents night time waking is not considered at all problematic. Especially in cases like yours when your child sleeps for a very long stretch before waking for a feed.

    At the end of the day though, if this definition of "sleeping through" does not sit well with you, then I have no issue with you deciding to define your child as "sleeping through," and responding accordingly.

    I hope this makes sense and has helped. Please let me know if you require any further clarification. I'm very grateful to you for your participation.

    Best wishes, Melita Rossa
