Ds1 didn't sleep through until he was about 3.5-4 he was a terrible sleep from the day I brought him home from hospital. We had a routine, we didn't have a routine, we Co slept we tried it all. We had to cio with him to get him to go to sleep initially which took 3 nights at 18 months I also stopped night feed at this time as well hoping it would stop the wake ups it didn't he would still wake 3-5 times a night wanting varying things drink, toilet once tt, put covers back on, had nightmare the list went on he is now 7 goes to bed between 7-7.30 each night and unless sick doesn't wake until 6-6.30 each morning. Sometimes it doesn't matter what you do/try your child won't sleep more then they want to.
Ds2 18 months slept through pretty much from when he was born, 6.30-5.30, he occasionally wakes once through the night has a little drink then goes back to sleep. My boys couldn't be more different

First "real" sleep through 7-7 was when bub was 4.5mo. I remember it too well... We were on holiday... In Italy.
Ha it was like an awoken dream

We are quite a child led family but followed a similar routine every day. First baby didn't sleep though til he was weaned from breastfeeding. Second just did it on his own, was a nice suprise!

After 11 months of routine, my DD finally slept through (1030pm to 530am). Now 17 mths, she has done this about 3-4 times since.

DD first slept through at 4 months, when we went to sleep school. This was following a month or so of her waking hourly! I had the worst nights sleep ever though, I kept thinking something must have been wrong with her. Following that she has generally been pretty good and has slept through more nights than not. Now when she wakes it's usually due to sickness.

Its something I have always wondered, I haven't ever heard about anyone going to sleep school and their babies / toddlers not sleeping through within weeks/ months.
That to me says that there are ways for those babies and toddlers (and therefore their parents) to get decent sleep and sleep through not long after, yet there's still an argument that some babies and toddlers just don't sleep or need zyz to sleep
Is it not just possible that their parents haven't tried that magic bullet that will work for their kid?
Sorry does that even make sense?
