If your baby slept through the night early on did it stay that way?

DD is 8 weeks and is now doing a good 7-8 hour stretch most nights (absolute minimum 5 hours), despite being ebf. DS didn’t manage this until he was a good 10 months old (and still often wakes in the night at 3) so I feel like I’ve hit the baby jackpot this time. Please tell me it will stay this way!

Yes it did!

DS1 slept 12 hours from about 10 weeks. He will be 3 this year and still sleeps like a dream

DD slept 10 hours from 8 weeks or so and she will be 2 this year and still sleeps like a dream

DS2 is only 6 months old but sleeps from 8pm to 7am and has done for months

Yes, we've been blessed with good sleepers. DC1 was 11 weeks and DC2 was 8 weeks when they started sleeping through the night and they've been the same ever since. The only time they wake up in the night is if they're poorly and it breaks me!!

Yes, it did with my oldest 2. Hopefully number 3 (8 months) continues.

One of mine slept through at 5 months, he did it for a month and then started waking again unfortunately. Another was 4 months and has stayed a good sleeper ever since so not much help really!

No, sorry, my dd slept really well until 4 months then she has slept really badly since (now 10 months)

My advice is enjoy it and try not to stress, what will be will be!

ZibbidooZibbidooZibbidoo Tue 19-Jun-18 12:21:52

Yes it did. He slept through 7-7 from 9 weeks old and apart from a brief rough patch around 16 weeks old he stayed that way.

LorelaiVictoriaGilmore Tue 19-Jun-18 12:24:06

No! Just posted on another thread saying that ds slept until he was 5 months old and then stopped sleeping for 10 months. Bad times!

Librarybooksandacoconut Tue 19-Jun-18 12:24:07

Seems the general consensus is yes - I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

I've only one child, but she has always been a good sleeper (also ebf to weaning then bf to 16 months). There was a brief period around 8-9 months where she was a little unsettled but I think that was a combination of growth spurt and my periods returning. I think my milk changed mid-way through my period cycle once they kicked back in.

No! My 1st was an absolute doddle as a baby and toddler, slept through from 6 weeks (unlike the other 2)
She reached junior school age and everything unravelled badly. If you think a baby crying in the night is bad, try dealing with a sobbing teenager.

And it seems like the 4 month sleep regression is the point it might change. Time will tell which way dd goes.

SasBel Tue 19-Jun-18 12:26:04

Good luck!

No, after a blissful 16 weeks of 8 hour nights, teething started. Finished when DS was 4......

Librarybooksandacoconut Tue 19-Jun-18 12:27:16

Oh god zadoc, I hoped by that age we’d be having full night sleeps from everyone in the house! It sounds tough going for you

FATEdestiny Tue 19-Jun-18 12:27:22


My DC3 was sleeping two 6h chunks from literally the day he was born. I had 7 weeks of a single wake in 12 hours. Then before he was 2 months old was sleeping 12h without waking at all - this stayed the same from then onwards.

GrumpySausage Tue 19-Jun-18 12:28:38

Yes my DS slept through from 8 weeks and has been a brilliant sleeper since.

Having DC2 tomorrow so hoping for the same!

Nottalotta Tue 19-Jun-18 12:30:18

No. Ds2 slept from 8pm til 4am for 3 months, from about 4 weeks old. He's spent months waking between 10 and 11pm then up to 6 more times a night. We are down to roughly 2 or 3 times a night at 16 months . Last night he slept from 7.30 to 2.30!!!

SilkyDrawers Tue 19-Jun-18 12:31:00


Luck of the draw, really. DD slept through from when she was just a few weeks old and that’s never changed. She’s nearly 5.

I’m usually too embarrassed to tell others IRL as I know how lucky we are. You only hear the bad stories - people with good sleepers are usually reluctant to boast grin

DS is now a teenager and he has always loved his sleep.
He slept through from 3 weeks and (barring illness) he always has.
I realise how very lucky I have been!
The problem I have now is actually the opposite... getting him out of bed for school is a nightmare!

flamingofridays Tue 19-Jun-18 12:32:06

nope sorry!

ds was a dream from about 8 weeks. slept 7-7 and woke up for a feed at 11 until about 12 weeks and then slept through.

moved in to his own room at 6.5 months and he didn't sleep half as well.

has got mostly better, some nights he does 6-7 and doesn't wake up, other times he does 7-5 and wakes up 3 times but mostly he is ok now. thank the lord

Purplepjs Tue 19-Jun-18 12:32:07

My little one slept through from a few weeks (I used to wake him to feed on the night!). Until 12 weeks. Then it all went wrong for a year!! He’s a wonderful sleeper now though. Here’s hoping your little one has cracked it. Enjoy her.

Twickerhun Tue 19-Jun-18 12:37:00

No I was so smug until about 8 months then it all went wrong. He now at 19 months wakes 3-4 times a night still

halfwitpicker Tue 19-Jun-18 12:42:05

DS slept through reliably from 5 months (12 hours) and has since continued to do so. He's now 4.

FloatingPanda Tue 19-Jun-18 13:07:23

One of mine was awful from the start, until nearly 3 years old and the other was really good until weaning and then it went to shit.
