sleeping through the night — The Bump
Babies: 0 - 3 Months

sleeping through the night

Our peanut is still just 2 weeks, so we don't expect her to sleep through the night yet.  I was just curious how long it took for your little ones to make it through the night.

Thanks mamas!

Re: sleeping through the night

  • She started going 5 hours (which is technically sttn) at 5 weeks.  She really started sttn, 8-10 hours, at 8 weeks. 

     

    ETA: We've been blessed so far with a great sleeper, but I just know any night now our luck will come to a screeching halt, lol.

  • I'll let you know when it happens. LOL

  • I believe the technical definition of STTN is 6 or more hours.  Going by that, DS didn't STTN until he was about 5 weeks old.  This is when we started our bath, bottle, and rock bedtime routine.  He goes down anywhere from 6 to 7:15pm and will sleep anywhere from 12:30 to 3am.  It all depends on how much he ate before going down for the night and how exhausted he is.  

     

  • 11 weeks, then she got a cold and it took her a few weeks to get back on track. Now she sttn almost every night.
  • DS slept 5+ hours around 8-10 weeks (can't remember exactly).  He still doesn't STTN consistenly....he does it about once a week now.  Just gets up once a night to eat usually.

    mavs girl: I was JUST thinking the same thing.  As I was writing my reply, I was also knocking on wood and staring at the video monitor just waiting for karma to bite me in the a$$.

  • DS started sttn around 8 weeks (8pm-7am) and that lasted until 3.5 months.

  • For the past week, DS has sttn. I think it's a?fluke, but I appreciate the sleep while it lasts.

  • DD didn't really STTN until we started swaddling around 9 weeks.  Before that she'd sleep about 5 hours, but she wouldn't go down for the night until around 2:00am!  Once we started swaddling, we were able to put her down earlier (like 12:00am) and she'd sleep until around 7:00.  Now she goes down between 9:00pm-10:00pm and sleeps until 7:00am or 8:00am.

  • I can't remember when we dropped her 2nd night feeding but I think it was around 8 weeks.  Now she sleeps 4-5 hours, quick feeding and down for another 7 hours or so.  Babies need at least 2 night feedings for awhile so I wouldn't be in any rush.  At 2 weeks I think I was getting up every 2 hours or so, at 4 weeks it moved to 3 hours and so on.

    Ditto on all this.  Lately it has been from 8 or 9 pm until 6 or 7 am!  She is a crazy sleeper though but she was also a 10 lb baby and is now pushing 14 lbs so she doesn't really need any night feedings to sustain her weight (per her Dr)

  • At 4 months he started sleeping through the night on occasion. Now at almost 6 months, he is still only sleeping (6 to 8 hours) about once a week. We put him to bed at 7ish, so even if he does make 8 hours, it is still in the middle of the night, so I still have to get up. It'll be great when he can walk to the fridge and pour himself a glass of milk! Lol!
