So when did your baby go 6 hours at night?

DS1 is 10 wks today and is going a very consistent 4 hours between feeds at night. Down at 7.30pm, awake at 11.30/12, feed, awake at 3.30/4am, feed, awake at 6.30/7am. He's good, he'll take a feed and then settle straight back to sleep but he's been doing this for about 5 weeks and I guess I'm waiting for something to change.... We actually had a few 5/6 hour stretches when he was 4 weeks and thought we'd hit the jackpot but that lasted a couple of nights. And then at 6 weeks he started going to 12.30am....but we're back at 11.30pm. He's breastfed and a good weight, on 50th centile.

DS was about 12 weeks.

DD was about 2.5 years.

Good thing DS was the first child really grin

I think DD was about 10 weeks. Unfortunately though, now at 11 months old I count myself very lucky if we get a 6 hour stretch.

Not happened yet. DD1 is 18mths.

DS was 2.5 years and DD was 16 months.

They are 8 and 20 months now and still don't seem to need much sleep sad

Every child is so different, dd at 4 weeks, and ds at 5 weeks confused

DD is 16 weeks. We had a few long stretches during her 14th/15th week and are now back to two/three hourly wake ups.

My first slept for 6 hours the first time on Christmas Eve/morning. It was the best sleep I've ever had and a great present! He was 10 weeks.

DS did it about twice around 4 months (2 months corrected). He then did it again once at 9 months. And once at 14 months.
He started reliably sleeping through soon after he turned 2 grin

Pah! I dream of 4hr stretches and my DS is 16weeks.
Depends on your luck it seems!
Hang in there xxx

mrsmugoo Fri 31-Oct-14 14:09:41

I think about 4 or 5 months before he would go that long!

He's almost 8 months now and is just dropping his last 5am feed and sleeping through now.

Sorry but at 10 weeks you've still got plenty of broken sleep to come yet!

At about 1 year. DD sleeps well now (18months) but it took a long old time to get there. She was also breastfed and on the 50th centile.

ds1 3 years
ds2 8 weeks
Dd1 12 weeks

and Dd2 is 8 weeks and has been sleeping 6 hours at night from 4/5 weeks

all depends on the baby, each of mine all had the exact same routine and as you can see each is different

Still not at 16 months.

Gen35 Fri 31-Oct-14 14:34:47

Can't remember with dc1, I think it was definitely by 8 months. Dc2 does every now and again at 3 weeks

GoldfishSpy Fri 31-Oct-14 14:36:57

DS1 8 months
DS2 12 weeks
DS3 is now 10 weeks and consistently going 7-8pm - 4am
I feel almost human....

minkymuskyslyoldstoaty Fri 31-Oct-14 14:39:00

dd was about 3 years!

Cakeismymaster Fri 31-Oct-14 21:45:28

Dd was doing 6/7 hour stretches at 10 weeks...then 12 weeks happened and it was never repeated (every 2 hours from then on) until last week, age 13 months
Bf and 85th centile
(Stopped bf 7 days ago..slept through for first time 5 days ago)

hollie84 Fri 31-Oct-14 21:47:28

DS1, 6 hours soon after birth, 8 hours between 8 weeks and 18 weeks and then... not again until 2.5 years grin

DS2, 6 hours without a feed from 6 months (but still woke). Sometimes does 6-8 hour stretches now at 8 months.

photocop Fri 31-Oct-14 21:49:22

DC1 approx 8 months.
DC2 approx 18 months.

leelteloo Fri 31-Oct-14 21:49:26

Dd it was 3.5 long years and at 5 she still wakes most nights.
Ds1 was at about 6 months, brill sleeper.
Ds2 total nightmare and still has not slept longer than 4 hours at 9 months.
Yawn bloody yawn

pookamoo Fri 31-Oct-14 21:49:57

<hollow laugh> 3 years and counting (DD2) ...

Try not to worry about it, OP.

ThinkIveBeenHacked Fri 31-Oct-14 21:51:54

DD was 8 weeks - started while we were on holiday. She had a sleep regression at four months but then once past that she was then doing 7-7. Til the next regression hit....

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Fri 31-Oct-14 21:57:17

Dd1 about six months, coincidently as we started feeding her solids.

Dd2 about eight weeks. Was bliss.

RunningOutOfIdeas Fri 31-Oct-14 22:01:52

DD1 was 2 years before she consistently slept anything close to 6 hours.

DD2 did it at 2 days. We were still in hospital and I woke up at night, realised it had been that long since her last feed, panicked and checked that she was still breathing, then thought YES I have a child that sleeps. In the morning she started looking yellow and we realised she was so sleepy due to jaundice.

DD2 is actually a much better sleeper than DD1 is. I think it just luck though (she also does more spectacular tantrums so not all good).
