Without a word of a lie 10 weeks old 7pm till 7/8am and is still a great sleeper at nearly 2yrs old. Hope your little one gives you a good night sleep soon.

If by sleep through you mean 5hrs. By 3 months of age. If longer than say 6hrs, I'm still waiting at 14 months.

DS - Bedsharing - about 18 months. He got up during the night and went to sleep next to DS until he was 4.5. (DS was sleeping on a blow up mattress on the floor of the living room at the time so I could safely bedshare with DD. We had 2 mattresses in preparation. DS also had a severe speech delay so it was difficult to communiate with but once we could we encouraged him to stay in his own bed.)
DD - Terrible sleeper. She slept through 3-4 times until she was 2 years. It got better after that and she has progressively got better between the ages of 2-4. She woke last night because she was cold and wanted the fan off. I turned it off, put her stories back on (that she falls asleep to) and she went back to sleep.

My boys were nearly 2. I had to wean them just before 20 months because nearly 2 years of getting up 10+ times a night had taken its toll.
Dd slept through from about 4 weeks. And the regressed at 4 months so much so that I was getting up to one baby almost as often as I had been getting up for two. I weaned her just this weekend gone. She is already sleeping way better- not 10+ hours yet, but at least 6 which is a magnificent improvement. She also had a near 2 hour nap today- usually it's just 40 minutes so hopefully in the not to distant future I can get a full nights sleep again!

At 2yrs old, DD's best sleep would be 9-10pm until 6am when bedsharing from 18 months. She goes to bed at 7, but wakes after a few hours and will keep waking if we try to resettle her in her bed. She's always had a lot of trouble getting to sleep and transitioning sleep cycles. Was never, ever this 'drowsy but awake' thing that they speak of, ... none of this 'self settling' stuff that they talk about. And we're not sleep trainers in this house (attachment and responsiveness-focused).
On the plus side, we woke up to cuddles from soft little arms and a spontaneous 'I love you mummy, I love you daddy' this morning, and the warm fuzzy feeling it gave me has stayed with me all day.

I can't really remember. I think it was about 3 months for a 10 hour stint, 4.5 months for 12hours?
For us the key was room temperature and bedding, not aiding bub to sleep (feeding/patting/dummy/rocking etc) , timing day naps right (routine) so bub would be the right level of tired at night. Oh, and solids intake (eg not holding off too long before introducing solids, ensuring each meal was at least 1/3 protein, purée and finger foods in the early days).
With ds2 we did have a 2 week period around 4 months where he woke a few times in the night but we nipped that in the bud by trying resettling first.

DS woke regularly until about 14 months old. Then he started doing great stints with the odd wake up. Now at 16 months I would say he sleeps through (7-7) 5 out of 7 nights.
We definitely had to nudge him in the right direction though!

5 out my 6 were after 2 years. The other one was around 1 yr old.
