Or sleeping at night for periods of 6 hours +

Just curious.

Hmm maybe 8 months for a couple of nights then teething / colds / whatever then back to square one

Still doesn’t - he’s 27 months

DC 1 - 8 weeks
DC2 - 4.5 years!

PetalMettle Sun 08-Oct-17 08:10:05

@pebbles dc2 must have been a shock to the system!

NellWilsonsWhiteHair Sun 08-Oct-17 08:11:16

2.5 years.

Ridingthegravytrain Sun 08-Oct-17 08:12:20

About 18 months and even then it wasn't nightly until about 2.5 yrs

DC1 - 8 weeks
DC2 - it’s hit and miss still at 15 months

Ds is only nine months at the moment but the past three weeks has slept through about twice a week which is blissful!!

As soon as I stopped breastfeeding at 19 months. Wish I’d known sooner!

DS slept through or was up only once or twice from a year. Now he's 21 months and maybe up in the night once a week.

7-8 months I think. It improved hugely once we got proper naps sorted in the daytime

Was going 9 till 7 at 10 weeks old. Had an awful four month regression for a couple of weeks and then he was onto long nights and is now twelve hours.

I realise we are incredibly lucky - he’s just always loved his night time sleep.

Napping is a battle however!

Robots1Humans0 Sun 08-Oct-17 08:27:55

Get about 6 hours out of him now she 2 , every child is different don't compare smile

HashtagTired Sun 08-Oct-17 08:28:52

It’s really quite individual isn’t it! So many different responses!

DC1 5 months
DC2 is 3 soon and we're still waiting confused

DS1 slept through between twelve and sixteen months, then went back to waking during the night. he's now three and still wakes most nights.
DS2 is 13 months and has been sleeping through since he was 9 months old. Considering how things went with DS1 I'm just praying it'll last!

soundsystem Sun 08-Oct-17 08:35:59

DC1 11 weeks, from 6.30pm until 6am. All down to the wonderful bedtime routine I implemented, of course.

DC2 is 8.5 months and does 10pm until 5am a couple of times a week, if I'm lucky. Very glad I kept my smugness with DC1 to myself!

ThatsWotSheSaid Sun 08-Oct-17 08:37:48

Dc1 6 weeks or younger HV wanted us to wake her but was putting on weight so I didn't. She slept for 12 hours a night consistently by about 3 months old!!
Dc2 by 4 months we were getting decent sleep most nights but he is inconsistent and still wakes up a couple of times a week now (he's three).

Waitingonasmile Sun 08-Oct-17 08:41:10

18 months.

UserThenLotsOfNumbers Sun 08-Oct-17 08:47:06

Broadly speaking,
At 10 months DD slept 18:00 - 05:00
At a year she sleeps 18:30 - 06:00

BendingSpoons Sun 08-Oct-17 08:47:34

Sleeping 10-12 hours the majority of nights from when we night weaned at 11 months.

Haudyerwheesht Sun 08-Oct-17 08:47:38

Ds - 3 years old and not reliably

Dd - 5 weeks

CPtart Sun 08-Oct-17 08:49:09

Around 3-4 months when I stopped bf. Never ever brought them into our bed, ever, very minimal contact after lights out, and wasn't afraid to leave them to protest a bit. Pretty consistently after that tbh unless ill.
