Not even once Chasing? I'm sure J has slept through twice. I think it's twice, he definitely did once.

ChasingDaisy Wed 15-May-13 16:06:26

Nope, never. Longest is 6 hours and even then only a handful of times. Rarely get longer than 4/5 hours.

Sob.

ValiumQueen Wed 15-May-13 16:19:02

J has slept through 11 times. I have not.

F did it once, 10-6, so long ago that I can't remember when it was. Not even sure it was this year.

It better be bloody soon! I neeeeed a decent nights sleep. S lured me into a false sense of security at 10 weeks and made me think I had a good sleeper, never been more wrong in my life!

I neeeeeeed him to sleep. I've done exactly three days of work and I am fucking exhausted. And I have to carry on working FOREVER.

MsJupiterJones Wed 15-May-13 21:33:09

Mine's never slept right through. He had a short phase of sleeping till 5 but only for a few nights.

I am tired.

Alexander has never slept through the night. Me and dh now split care - he does nights, I do days. Was quite ready to go bonkers with madness with lack of sleep.

Kyzordz Wed 15-May-13 22:39:44

Marking place. New phone, taking ages to get used to so please bear with me. What counts as sleeping through? 8 hours?

Dixiebell Wed 15-May-13 22:43:56

Never no sleeping through here neither.

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 23:08:12

Booyaaaaah!

Dixiebell Wed 15-May-13 23:08:28

Well done Detective...grin

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 23:10:08

O slept through for the first time at 16 weeks. He then replicated this for around 2 weeks. Maybe less.

I class sleeping through as once they are in the cot for the night, til 7 the next morning. I'll let you have 6am as sleeping through though, as in those 2 amazing weeks, he woke around 6-7am. Which was fucking AWESOME!

<Longs for those days again>.

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 23:10:25

Sneaky fingers here!

TheDetective Wed 15-May-13 23:11:14

Sorry I should say, he slept through once, and then not again til around 20 weeks. Whatever it was, it was early April. So maybe 19 weeks.

Wah.

kirrinIsland Wed 15-May-13 23:15:27

N has slept through (as in midnight or so til 6ish) about 4 or 5 times. There is no pattern to it - she just throes one in every so often to raise my hope and then dashes them by waking every hour for the next month

Kyzordz Wed 15-May-13 23:20:31

If doing a df means they haven't slept through e has only slept through about a dozen times. If the df is ok hes done it aalmost every night since about 8 weeks.

Really cant manage an entire huge post on this bloody phone until I am more used to it. What I wanted to say was e ate sweet potato puree!! Also he seems quite alot better in himself and was only sick once today. Still not drinking drinking properly but much improved.

Hate my body too. Erm... chasing hugs, sorry I don't know where the fucking stars are to bastard bold anything!!!

Give up hopefully ill manage more of a post tomorrow

Night all x

I'm never going to sleep again, am I?

kirrinIsland Thu 16-May-13 01:02:40

Feels that way doesn't it Luis sad

ChasingDaisy Thu 16-May-13 01:12:00

Luis remember what you have said to us on several occasions - It does get better. They will sleep. Eventually

pass your post made me simultaneously laugh and cry. You're awesome.

I'm tired.

PennieLane Thu 16-May-13 01:20:06

LO slept through from 8 weeks until about 20 weeks, except for 4 month sleep regression for a few days. Those days are long gone and I'm scared I'll never see them again. The being problem is the nappies-on second change of night and each size 5 is full to brim (she's 14lbs).
