Babies: 0 - 3 Months

if you baby sleeps thru the night...

what hours do they sleep? My son is sleeping 8pm to anywhere between 4:30am-5am, so he is sleeping a good 8 hours, somtimes 9. I guess I would consider this sleeping thru the night, however..I don't particularly care to be up at 4:30am for the day!! I usually try to go to bed by 9pm to get the most sleep possible once he is down, so if he wakes up around 4:30ish, I've already slept over 7 hours, so there is no way I'm falling back asleep even if he does. Just wondering if your baby sleeps thru the night, what the hours are...

Re: if you baby sleeps thru the night...

  • Most newborns do not sttn. STTN is technically 5 hours. Your baby actually needs closer to 12 for their "nighttime" sleep, but as a newborn that can be hard to differentiate. 

    Honestly if my newborn was sleeping those hours I'd have thought

  • I'm jealous! My 2.5 month old sleeps from 7-12 than she is up every 1.5 hours.
  • My daughter sttn several days a week. She sleeps from 9 or 10-6 or 8 or 9.

  • Mine just started sleeping over 8 hours.  She goes down between 9 and 9:30 and sleeps till around six.  She eats a little, gets a clean diaper and then falls asleep again till around 8 or 8:30.  I love it!
  • I'm almost scared to answer your question, because I feel like the moment I talk about it, it's all going to go to he$$.  But here I go:

    DS usually goes down between 9-10pm and wakes around 5:30am.  I will nurse him, he sleeps for anoth

  • I would love it if my boy slept a solid 8 hours! He's usually down for the night around 8-9pm and will sleep anywhere from 3-5 hours before waking to be fed. Then he wakes me every 1-2 hours the rest of the night (growing boy!) until we're up for the day

  • Recently DS has started going down between 9 and 10 and waking up between 4 and 5. However, after he eats he usually falls back asleep between 6 and 7 so I definitely take advantage of the early morning nap and get back into bed too!

  • DD started doing 4-5 hour stretches to start the night when she was 3-4 weeks old. At 5 weeks old, she started doing 7 hour stretches, as long as she's swaddled. The hours have been about 10 pm-5 pm. Last night though, she went down at 9:15 pm and wasn't

  • DD sleeps 6:30pm to 2am, has a bottle while half awake and then goes back down until about 6:30am. Yes, I wish the long stretch was at a better time, but the point is she's getting the sleep she needs. At this point, I feel like they're too young to be me

  • DS goes to bed around 7, 7:30 and sleeps till somewhere between 4:30-6. He normally will take a bottle and go back to bed for another 3 hours. Guess him being a good sleeper makes up for the fact that my 3 1/2 yr old still wakes up several times.
  • DD sleeps some nights from 8pm-5am, I feed her then put her in her swing, and she sleeps in there for another 3-4 hours.

    Other nights, it's 10:30-8am. And then up for a couple of hours and back down for a nap in the swing.

    Mine is typically going to sleep between 8 and 9 and will sleep until 5ish, wake for a feeding, and then sleep for another 2 to 3 hours.  I made the mistake one day of waking him up around 3am because he hadn't been eating much that previous day and
